Sovereign Hill’s Horses

Visitors love our horses! They are a special part of the Sovereign Hill experience. Horses were also important to the sights and sounds of Ballarat’s diggings and Main Road during the fantastic goldrush days of the 1850s. Then, they were used to power vehicles that carried people and goods, and to drive farming and mining machinery (such as the puddler and the whim on Sovereign Hill’s diggings).

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