Cock Horse - Suffolk Show -2010

(May 31, 2009)

Once again we took an entry for the cock horse class at the Suffolk show, this time we decided to try something a bit different and took a pair. 


The cock horse would have been, used to help a team of four horses pull it's coach & passengers up steep hills.

The cock horse would wait for a team at the bottom of the hill & hitch on & pull it to the top, then unhitch & walk back down to the bottom & wait for the next team.

In very hilly parts of the country a pair of horses would have been used.

Today you will still find many public houses called the Cock Inn.
