HorsePower

HorsePower: a celebration of Scotland's equine heritage

"Where man has left his footprints in the long ascent from barbarism to civilisation, we find the hoof print of a horse beside it" John Trotwood Moore

HorsePower is an imaginative and exciting event that celebrates our relationship and reliance on the horse. There is no better place to host this celebration than The Helix Park, home of the magnificent Kelpies, the world's largest equine sculptures. Equine history and archaeology is brought to life with a wide range of activity. The event will count live demonstrations, talks, exhibitions, archeological digs, fun activities for the kids and many more.
