Sledmere Stables Shire Horse


On show in the historical stables we have the breed of horses that would have been on Sledmere Estate in the past for both working and leisure pursuits.


Our magnificent shire horse; in the past her role on the estate would have consisted of working on the farm pulling the plough, harrow and other farm machinery, at Sledmere, she may even have been used as the stud horse to deliver feed, hay and straw to all of the paddocks as each paddock has a separate feed room.  Diana is a gentle giant and is just reaching her prime.  Today she pulls a cart around the grounds to show her heavy horse power and enjoys parading in front of Sledmere House where she gets to meet everyone whilst showing off her friendly demeanor.
