Horseback Falconry

This event has closed.

The National Horseracing Museum is delighted to welcome back The Recycled Racehorse Falconry Team to the museum on Saturday 25th March 2023 for our Horseback Falconry event. This follows the success of our Horseback Falconry Day in 2022.

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 the horses have with the birds of prey. You’ll be able to find out how these relationships were forged and how two such diverse animals became a happy and relaxed team.

  • 11am – First horseback falconry display
