FUN TIME. Ride our Clydesdale Horses or Jump on a BIG yellow Digger for some operating fun. There is always something to do on the farm enjoy interacting with our Clydesdale Horses, Heilan Coos, Alpacas and Mischievous Donkeys while meeting all the farm animals giving you an insight into their lives. The experience is tailored to suit you. Try your hand at riding or driving our Clydesdale Heavy Horses, grooming, mucking out, tacking up, bareback riding, herding on horseback, walking and feeding all the animals. This is a very individual experience and will vary depending on you requirements and weather.NO EXPERIANCE REQUIRED.WHY NOT try Something Different - the 'BIG TOY' experience at DIG-a-day. Operate a mini to 14Ton digger or big yellow JCB Tractor, putting your coordination skills to the test in challenges set. OR MIX IT UP - Combining DIG-a-Day and Blackstone Clydesdales in one experience.Great for all the family for children and adults alike. NO DRIVING LICENCE REQUIRED.
