Donating to the Shire Horse Society
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 (don't forget to use our hashtag when posting on social media #saveourshires). 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
Our Charity is dependent on donations and if you would like to make a donation online, please click on the button below to donate using the Charity Checkout/Enthuse Secure Online payment System.
Charity Checkout allows you to make one-off, or regular payments directly to the Society.
Any person wishing to donate to the Shire Horse Society can now simply text the word SHIRE to 70800 from a mobile telephone and £3 is added to their ‘phone bill.
This money will then be used on future Society preservation initiatives.
“Thank you for Helping to preserve the Horse that put the Great in Britain.”
