Our horses move all manner of materials during estate work, including hay and firewood. When creating grass snake habitats, we transport chestnut paling, compost and volunteers to chosen sites in Richmond Park, to establish safe areas for snakes to lay eggs away from badger predation. We also transport timber in woodland areas to log pile sites, creating habitats for invertebrates, such as Stag Beetles.
In our outreach work to create heritage experiences and educational opportunities for the community around us, we regularly provide dray rides. These are sometimes focused on wildlife experiences, including bird-watching or night wildlife, and sometimes fundraising with leisure rides in nature reserve areas.
