Heavy Horse Camp, although Hosted  by The Shire Horse Society, welcomes all breeds of heavy horse and is aimed at owners of all levels, from grassroots and novice to those more advanced.

It’s a great learning environment and we all take something away with us.

Each Camper can individually tailor the sessions that they would like to participate in during the two days of training sessions. Day three is a show day, where you can put into practice all the new skills that you have learned (with a little help if needed)

Prior to camp you will be able to choose the sessions and topics that you would like to learn and participate in.
