2016 Walking Festival - Packhorse Walk
Sat 22 October 2016, 10:00 – 11:00 BST
The New Forest Packhorse Company offers hosted walking experiences, in the north of the National Park, accompanied by one of Britain’s rarest native pony breeds. The route for the Walking Festival follows part of the busiest smuggling trail on the New Forest. During the 18th century New Forest ponies laden with contraband would have carried the goods from the coast to Fordingbridge. Take turns in leading a pack pony on a trip that takes you back in time!
