Clydesdales

We work with all breeds of horse, but we have a particular affection for the Clydesdale.  Generations of Skinners have worked with them and we continue to surprise the horse world with their versatility.  

Traditionally a Draught horse, they were used for pulling wagons and farm equipment but with the rise of mechanised agriculture the breed went into decline.  To preserve and promote this amazing historic breed we continually reinvent their purpose.  They pull wedding carriages, they pull “ladies carts”, we ride them side saddle and we have formed a ridden display team.  We regularly upset the establishment with our antics but our goal is to preserve this amazing breed and allow everyone to enjoy them.  If that upsets a few “traditionalists” along the way, then their loss is your gain :)
