Our beautiful Working Shire Horses Rockie & Ben, and the very wonderful Patrick the Pony from K & H Cockington Carriages are working together to raise money to send to the Ukraine.

Join us on Monday 18th April here in the picturesque village of Cockington, famously known for its Horse & Carriage heritage where will be offering spectacular Shire Horse and Carriage rides through the village, along the seafront then circling back to The Drum Inn situated in the heart of Cockington village.

The ride will last approximately 35 minutes and we can take upto 6 guests. The total cost for the carriage ride is £150 and all proceeds will go towards supporting the humanitarian appeal in the Ukraine.

Not only will there be the Devon Shire Carriage rides to enjoy but also Patrick the Pony will be collecting donations and he’ll be hosting a Shire Horse shoe painting competition outside The Drum Pub Inn!

All rides must be Pre booked. Please contact us for booking and payment information which will be directly from you to the Ukrainian Red Cross via their secure donation page.
We have limited availability so be quick to book!

Please contact us direct via messenger or email

We are so excited to be joining the Cockington community in April and feel confident that together we can raise money to support the humanitarian appeal that so many are dependent on in the Ukraine at this time.

Thank you for your support.
