Northcote Heavy Horse Centre, Spilsby, Lincolnshire

The Northcote heavy horse centre has been open for over twenty years now; it offers a final home to horses and ponies that have nowhere else to go usually due to medical or behavioural problems. They are a registered charity that is run entirely by volunteers and relies totally on the income from visitors.

On normal open days there is a hands on (if brave enough) experience where you can get up close to some of the biggest breeds of horse in the world, they also have something a little smaller for the less adventurous in the shape of a miniature horse and Shetland ponies.

The volunteers put on special events days during the summer months to raise vital funds for the survival of the centre, these include very popular Medieval riding skills events that’s held twice per year, Medieval banquet, Summer fete, Halloween, and Santa day.

They also have the “Northcote flames” fire demonstration team who give displays of fire breathing, fire eating, fire baton and poi twirling

The centre is also home to the Lincolnshire Equestrian Vaulting Team who perform gymnastics on back of a moving horse.

The Medieval riding skills, Northcote flames and the Lincolnshire Equestrian Vaulting Team are all available to hire to attend events at events away from home.
