Many people when talking about hawking from horseback will say they’d love to go to Mongolia to see horses and eagles being used together. But who needs to go to Mongolia when you can come to Devon!
The only facility in the UK where eagles are worked with horses, Dartmoor Hawking take great pride in the fact that all five of their recycled racehorses are happy (not just tolerant) to work with the birds.
During late summer Autumn and winter the ‘Falconry from Horses’ days will include simulated hunting with eagles to maintain their fitness for the hunting season.
You will also get to work with fast hunting falcons, working them to the lure – a simulated hunting exercise.
