Save Our Shires

Become a Shire supporter

Shire Horses, for all of their dignity, grace and majesty, are a breed under threat. For centuries this loyal horse has served man, fearlessly taking him into war, tirelessly working the land, and transporting him and his goods the length and breadth of this country.

The Shire Horse Society is a registered charity entirely dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Shire Horse. Since 1878 the Society has been working to protect the breed. Now it needs your help, to continue to do so for years to come.

By making a donation, you can help the Society invest in the future of the breed. We can continue our work in maintaining high breed standards and registering horses.
