During a recent visit to Sovereign Hill in Ballarat, Victoria, we enjoyed a ride in a historical coach pulled by these beautiful draft horses.

Horses are a special part of the experience of visiting Sovereign Hill. Horses were a rich part of the sounds and smells of Ballarat’s diggings and Main Road during the fantastic days of the gold rushes of the 1850s. In those days, horses were the main way of powering vehicles, transporting people and goods and for driving farming and mining machinery (such as the puddler and the whim in Sovereign Hill’s diggings).

Sovereign Hill’s horses are working horses. You can see them in teams of two, four or more pulling a variety of vehicles – coaches, carriages, lorries, wagons and drags.
