Show Judge Announcement

The Shire Horse Society as the organisers of the world famous, National Shire Horse Show have announced the Judges for the 2021 show.

Staffordshire County Showground’s Bingley Hall will host their indoor event over three days from Friday, 19th to Sunday 21st March 2021.

Following the outbreak of COVID-19 and the Government banning mass gatherings their 2020 Show was cancelled with less than four-days to the start of their event in March.

The Society is keen to reassure their members, breeders, owners, exhibitors, traders and visitors from across the world that it’s business as usual and work on the 2021 Show is going ahead.

“It was with great disappointment and sadness that the 2020 Show had to be cancelled. We are hoping to make the 2021 event bigger and better and a celebration of the breed,” said Victoria Clayton, secretary of the Shire Horse Society.

“Given the cruel nature of the cancellation we have invited all the selected Judges from the 2020 show to officiate in 2021 and hope that they will accept.  The Committee Chairs discussed the matter at length and felt that this was the correct step to take and we look forward to welcoming our breed experts next year’’ Victoria added.

The Society plans to release their show schedule slightly ahead of its usual release date and it is envisaged that the classes will remain as had been scheduled for 2020.
