Woodsman Toby Hoad is part of a new age of heavy horse loggers who are leading a resurgence of the 10,000 year old tradition.
He has been hired to extract timber from 10 acres of woodland on an Iron Age hill fort on the Eling Estate in Berkshire.
The estate owners wanted the removal to be done by horses as modern machinery could have damaged the historic site.
Toby, who founded Dorset Horse Logging in 2008, has two Comtois horses, Celiene, 8, and Etsy, 6, who take turns pulling logs during eight hour shifts.
He said there are now about a dozen full time horse loggers in Britain and they are increasingly in demand as landowners become more environmentally conscious.
