Save Our Shires
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.
In 2012 the Society introduced its ‘Save our Shires’ campaign. Designed to raise awareness and increase public activity the Society has created its own brand easily recognisable and proving very popular. By joining the Society, making a donation or a purchase you will be helping the Society invest in the future of the breed. We can then continue our work in maintaining high breed standards and registering horses.
There are many ways that you can help the Shire Horse Society
To make a donation by post, please make cheques payable to the Shire Horse Society and send to:The Shire Horse Society
