For a lovely family outing, head to the Dorset Heavy Horse Centre in Verwood. Enjoy hands-on interaction with farm animals, free heavy horse wagon rides, as well as tractor and trailer rides. Pop into the small blacksmith museum and don’t miss the Gypsy Vardos and Showmans wagons, some of which you can enter.
We enjoyed our day at the Heavy horse centre and there was a lot more than just horses. My children had a carriage ride, rode a tractor, held bunnies, groomed ponies, went carting, bounced on the bouncy castle and enjoyed the outdoor playground. It can get quite muddy in places so I’d recommend wearing wellies if there’s been recent rain.
