Museum pays homage to the horse

BC Farm Machinery Museum will host an ‘All Things Horse Day’ on Saturday, April 26

Before the advent of tractors, swathers and combines, when it came to working the land, it was all about true horse power.

The B.C. Farm Machinery Museum will give the horse its due, with an “All Things Horse Day” on Saturday, April 26.

The celebration takes place at the museum on King Street in Fort Langley, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature a long list of equine-related attractions and demonstrations.

Visitors to the Fort Langley museum that day will be able to watch a professional farrier shoe a large draft horse, learn about horse harness, watch a back country horseman pack a load for the trail and learn about the Pony Comes to School Program.

A number of horse-related industries and agencies will be represented, from the Horse Council of B.C. to the Langley Horse and Farm Federation, B.C. Quarter Horse Association, B.C. Heavy Horse Breeders Association and the Horse Protection Society of B.C.

Admission to the museum that day will be free, courtesy of a donation from the Langley Horse and Farm Federation.
