The Shire Horse Society was established in 1878 to promote the Old English Breed of Cart Horse.
The last quarter-century has seen the regeneration of the Shire Horse. In their heyday, there was a heavy horse population of well over a million animals, but by the late 1950s and early 1960s this had dwindled to a few thousand. The Shire Horse Society, working with a growing number of breeders and enthusiasts, has gradually increased this population.
