🦌The RUT! 🦌 Shire Horse Drawn Carriage Deer Park Safari 

 Witness the spectacular Fallow Deer Rut this October on our Shire Horse Drawn Carriage Deer Park Safari 🐴🐴 

 Guided by our professional and experienced Deer Keepers, we’ll be taking you on an incredible adventure this October as we venture into the heart of our Deer Park here on Dartmoor for an unforgettable experience! This is truly one of the most exciting & breathtaking displays you’ll ever encounter. Not only will you meet our characterful working Shire horses but you’ll also experience some of nature’s rare & breathtaking events as we ride through the beautiful Deer Park. Watch closely from the comfort of the carriage as the Fallow Bucks jostle for position amongst the herd and Observe fierce mating battles when rival Bucks lock their antlers together in a battle of strength! Listen to the Bucks groaning and barking, as they advertise their presence and watch them wallowing, thrashing trees and defending their rutting stands in an attempt to attract the Does in for mating. 

 This is a wonderful multi sensory experience which brings you close to nature on a unique and exciting journey. An adventure not to be missed! 

 And remember to bring your camera as they’ll be some fantastic photographic opportunities! 📸

The carriage cost is £180 and we can take upto 6 guests.
