Horses, heritage and feasting

Working horses are part of our heritage. Did you know that Henry VIII was the first to start breeding Shire horses? He wanted a Great War Horse, capable of carrying a knight in full armour. He even forbade the export of horses to ensure that the enemy would never be able to breed a horse to match his "Shires".
