Welcome to the Essex Shire Horse Association. You'll find lots of information on the Shire Horse breed as well as the activities of the Essex Shire Horse Association like the annual Essex Heavy Horse and Driving Show, taking place on Sunday 14th July, near Barleylands in Essex.

We always welcome new members to the Association, so please visit the Join The ESHA page to find out more.

We're often running Quiz Nights, BBQs and other events to get us all together and having fun, so look out for the latest events on Facebook and our Events page!

Always held on the first Sunday in August, and this year for the first time near Barleylands, the annual Essex Heavy Horse and Driving Show is a day out not to be missed! There are horses of all sizes, from Shetland ponies and Hackney horses, up to Shires and Suffolk Punches. We have an excellent array of classic vehicles, including MGs, buses, tractors and even a fire engine. The dog agility gave dogs and owners a run for their money and of course the beer tent keeps everyone cool in between the many trade stands.
Ticket prices:-
Adults - 10.00      Senior Citizens - 8.00     Children under 14 are free!

Check out the Annual Show pages for how to find us and what's on! You can enter online for the Horse Classes, and download application forms to book a Trade Stand or register your Classic Vehicle. Applications close on 26th June 2019.
