Horse bells date back some 3,000 years, and have served a few different functions throughout history. Medieval war horses were often adorned with a single bell on their rump, which was believed […]
All horses that we work with at Tally-Ho have the correct disposition for what we ask of them. Not every horse has the ‘right stuff’ to be a carriage horse; but the ones that are successful and working in downtown Victoria, absolutely love it!
