Welcome to The South Wales Shire Horse Society website.

The aim of SWSHS is : To Improve the Breed and Promote the Breeding of Shire Horses.

South Wales Shire Horse Society was set up in 1983 by a group of people who were passionate about the Shire Horse breed and were concerned about its decline over several decades.

Today the breed is now much more popular and refined.

The South Wales Shire Horse Society is still just as passionate about the breed as ever and works tirelessly to support it.

This website is just a small part of the work that the society does to promote the breed of the Shire Horse. 

We hope you enjoy your visit to this website and will return frequently.

A BIG ThankYou to everyone who supported our show this year.

We look forward to seeing you again in July 2024
