Heavy Horses

There are many breeds of Heavy Horses all over the world. Many believe that the Shire is our only breed of Heavy Horse. The Shire is just one of the UK breeds. To help identify the different heavy horse breeds Southern Counties have produced a leaflet ‘Heavy horse breeds and their survival’ with the support of the ‘The Rare Breeds Survival Trust - Dorset Branch’.
We can only continue our work in securing the future of the Heavy Horse with your help. By attending our shows and joining our association you are helping us achieve our aims.
Why not look out for our merchandise stand at the many shows we attend. We have many unique gifts take home. All proceeds go to the association.
