The Horses' Tail: Horses in WWI

The Horses' Tail: Horses in WWI


As the First World War broke out it became clear that horses were needed for war work: hunters to carry Officers, dray horses to haul waggons and guns and mules and ponies to carry heavy loads. These horses need training for their new work and the remount section undertook the task of preparing them for their new lives on the frontline. Dr Kate Vigurs is an experienced and engaging historical interpreter with fifteen years professional experience in research, live historical interpretation and living history.
