The forest, men and horses
On Sunday 8th July 2007, the non-profit making organisation Trait d’Union will hold a day out in the heart of nature, including a competition involving fifteen or so lumberjacks and their draught- horses. A range of events for all members of the family will also take part during the competition. Adults can see how blacksmiths work, how to make leather collars for horses, how to trim large oak trees, and so on. They can also ask any questions they might have to a horse dentist and osteopath.

Children can also be kept busy with a face-painting workshop, pony and donkey rides, an adventure playground (also for adults), a bouncy castle, a drawing competition and old-fashioned games made from wood. To brighten up the day, jovial Fred will reveal the mysteries of his caravan and the animals inside and adults will receive information from the forest commission on forest management. Throughout the day snacks will be on sale at the bar and barbecue. The whole event takes place in an exceptional forest setting covering 2 hectares, with horse-driven carts providing a shuttle service between the site and the various car parks.
