Old tradition in the Belgian Ardennes, the horse has gradually disappeared from our forests for economic reasons. Nevertheless, our flat country is still known for its draft breeds such as Brabant and Ardennes The association "Cheval et Forêt" has made the bold gamble to reintroduce the draft horse in the forest Soignes, primarily for educational purposes but also for him to perform tasks now done by tractors and other machinery that damage too often vegetation. "Cheval et Forêt" Association holds:• Demonstrations of hauling (transporting felled trees) in forest Soignes.• Demonstrations of hookers on the site of Red Monastery and School. You can attend this "homecoming" at the site of Red Monastery (17, Avenue Keyen 1160 Brussels). Brussels and its surroundings therefore offer a wide range of possibilities from which to meet the noblest conquest of man's horse. Charlotte Stock
