All of our animals rehearse, like the cast, to ensure they are happy and used to the environment around them. We have 600 sheep at Wintershall. 


George the Horse

Horses in the Plays

This is George, one of several horses who have appeared in our plays, being ridden by Edward Hutley. George loved the attention of the crowds and particularly in Trafalgar Square. In the picture, he is being assisted by Tyra, one of our volunteers who is a very experienced animal handler and rider.  


Kit the Dog

Kit - Our Adorable Young Sheep Dog

Kit helps to look after our sheep at Wintershall and he is still in training!
