The Essex Shire Horse Association is affiliated to the Shire Horse Society and was formed in 1985 with the objectives of improving the breed and promoting the breeding of the Shire Horse.

We are a registered charity for which volunteers work hard to promote and support the heritage of these magnificent heavy horses within our area and beyond. It still appears to be a little known fact that many of our heavy horse breeds are now on the Rare Breed Survival lists with numbers significantly less than those of the Giant Panda. The Shire Horse , like the Suffolk and Clydesdale, is in need of support and involvement from the general public and we are especially encouraging younger generations to learn the skill and knowledge to help their survival, or we risk the loss of these beautiful and graceful animals for ever.

If you enjoy seeing the spectacle of these magnificent heavy horses and would like to see them continue to be bred and shown in this county, then please become an official supporter by becoming a member. If you would like to join the Essex Shire Horse Association, see our Home Page for a downloadable membership form. You do not have to own a Shire, or even be ‘horsey’ to become a member - just keen to support the continuation of our heritage. We are always eager to attract new members who may have more ideas on how to raise the profile of these wonderful animals, and help at our annual show is also very welcome.

From 2016 the Essex Heavy Horse and Driving Show will be at a new venue being land adjacent to Barleylands, Barleylands Road, Billericay, Essex  CM11 2UD on the first Sunday in August. See our Events page for further details.

We also try to hold various social events throughout the year, including a popular Quiz Night and, weather permitting, a summer barbecue.
