Today I am talking with Sandra Schmid about doing farm work with horses. Ever since my carriage driving course this summer, I am hooked. I love the idea of ploughing with horses or bringing in timber with them. Sandra is doing all this and much more with the Irish Cobs Henry and Flora on her little farm in Western Ireland. She tells us today what a horse should know in order to work in harness and what else you can do.
Your Guest today:
Sandra Schmid (Ireland)
Originally from Germany, Sandra is living in Ireland today and running the Hairy Henry Farm in the far West of the Country where they offer therapeutic riding and farm work for children and adults with special needs. Sandra goes off on regular trail rides with her Irish Cobs besides working with them on the farm and runs a YouTube Channel.
