Horse Blessing

We are thrilled to announce the return of the Harness Horse Blessing at Picton Castle on Sunday 26th May 2019

Carriages Meet from 11.30am, Service at 12.00 midday (TBC)


This is a deeply historical event originating from the late 1800’s to bless and monitor the good welfare of the working carriage horse for a safe driving season ahead. It was such an event that gave rise to the RSPCA.  Conducted by the Rev. Marianne Osborne, the horses and carriages will gather for a short service in the front of the Castle followed by a drive through the Park and lanes surrounding the estate.
