Join us on Sunday 30 October for a visit to the Museum of the Horse in the historic market town of Tuxford, Nottinghamshire, for a walk through over 2000 years of horse history.
The museum is housed in the former Newcastle Arms, an 18th century coaching inn. Collections include antique saddlery, bits, racing memorabilia, clothing and veterinary equipment. For driving enthusiasts, at the time of our visit there's a special exhibition on the history of coaching.
Time: The trip will depart from BHS HQ (Abbey Park, Stareton, Kenilworth CV8 2XZ) at 9am, arriving in Tuxford at around 10.30am.
Time for a cup of tea or coffee, then a guided tour from the museum's curator Sally Mitchell, and personal browsing time in the museum and in Sally's adjoining art gallery where prints and cards can be viewed alongside original paintings. Sally specialises in countryside, canine, equestrian and wildlife art.
A light lunch can be purchased at the coffee shop, then we'll board the bus again at 2.30pm, arriving back at BHS HQ around 4pm.
Cost: £16 per person.
This event is open both to members of the British Horse Society, and non members.
