The Essex Shire Horse Association was formed to further the knowledge, understanding and love of Heavy Horses, particularly the Shire Horse. Its members organise various events and an annual show for both association members and the general public.

The Association is an excellent place to make new friends with similar interests, learn new skills and enjoy Heavy Horses. You don't have to own a horse and no prior knowledge of horses is necessary, just be keen to support the continuation of our heritage. Family groups are particularly welcome.

We hold the Essex Heavy Horse and Country Show annually. We also try to hold various social events throughout the year, including a popular Quiz Night and, weather permitting(!), a summer barbecue. We are always eager to hear ideas on how to raise the profile of these wonderful animals, and help at our annual show is also very welcome.

Members receive Free Entry plus access to the Membersí Marquee at our Annual Show - see the menu for further details about the show, how to get there, and how to enter. Fees for annual membership are shown below. Once payment has been received (by cheque or postal order) you will receive a membership card and a copy of our latest newsletter and we look forward to meeting you!
