Shire Horse Event Demonstrations

Does your show or event want a slightly different attraction? How about Shire Horse Event Demonstrations!

All events include a static display of carts/ farm implements, examples of Shire Horse Shoes, Harness, Plaiting Equipment and Pictures. This is used to Educate and Promote the Shire Horse Breed which now has less numbers registered than the Giant Panda.

We are able to offer a variety of activities that include:

Meet and Greet

Get up close and personal to the Shires, have your picture taken with them, learn about the breed and about each of our Shires different personalities

Plaiting Demonstration

This is often undertaken at the lorry whilst preparing for the Main Ring Demonstrations. People are welcome to ask questions and have a go

Have a Go at Long reining

This can be undertaken in a small ring alongside our display area or in the main ring. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to have a go to see if they can get our Shires to walk in a straight line and navigate around cones

Driven Displays

We have a variety of carts, carriages and farm implements that can be used and displayed at a walk and trot. This display would require a ring of a fair size but please get in touch to see what we are able to offer

Ridden Displays

A sizeable ring is required to allow enough space for the Shires to Walk, Trot, Canter & Gallop. This demonstrations allow the visitors to see the Shires power and speed and will often make the ground shake

Tug of War Children vs Shire Horse

Usually using Children aged 8years of age and under with 6 to 8 of them on the rope at a time. Are they strong enough to beat the Shire?

We attend many events in both England & Wales that can vary from small Village Shows to large Steam Rallies so please get in touch to discuss your requirements.
