Martin and Philippa are a husband and wife team with five ex-racehorses retrained to work with birds of prey, showing the true versatility of the retrained racehorse when given the opportunity.
There will be two similar displays at 11am and 1pm which will last around an hour each. The demonstrations will be fast, informative, educational and entertaining, showing the relationship of one of the horses, Caymans, a retired flat racer from Godolphin, and the relationship he has with his birds.
You’ll find out how their relationship was forged and how two such diverse animals became a happy relaxed team.
