The  world’s largest gathering of Shire horses is coming back to Nottingham next year for the second bounce after a huge success this year.

The Shire Horse Society’s National Show trotted into Nottinghamshire for the first time in 2022 – held over two days at Newark Showground in Nottinghamshire.

Tickets are now on sale for the world’s largest gathering of Shire horses which returns to Newark.

Mojatu Magazine understands that after being impressed with this year’s success of the event, the organisers have decided to return for next year’s show, with the show being held on 11th and 12th March 2023.

Tickets to visit the show are now on sale through the Shire Horse Society’s website and are discounted if bought in advance.

Secretary of the Shire Horse Society and Show Director Victoria Clayton said in a statement, which Mojatu have seen:

“We are pleased to announce that we have put on sale the tickets for the Shire Horse National Show 2023 and are excited to be returning to Nottingham. We are building on what we achieved at Newark Showground in 2022 and have lots of plans to make it an even better day out for families and Shire horse enthusiasts. We look forward to welcoming lots of visitors to what is our flagship annual event.”

The show, which is the world’s largest gathering of Shire horses, is believed to be one of the oldest, almost continuous horse shows in the world, having been held for the first time at the Royal Agricultural Hall in Islington, London, in 1878, when the charity was named the English Cart Horse Society.

It is the chance for visitors to see the gentle giants of the horse world in all their finery being put through their paces in the ring – in hand, in harness and ridden.

The show generally attracts competitors from across the UK and Europe, and visitors from around the world.

It is the flagship event of the Shire Horse Society, the only charity dedicated to the protection, promotion, and improvement of the Shire horse.

As well as classes in the ring, the National Shire Horse Show will feature stalls, activities, and entertainment.

Only a few decades ago, the breed was in danger of dying out. It has experienced a resurgence in recent years, but it is still on the Rare Breed Survival Trust’s endangered breed list, with fewer than 300 pedigree Shire horse foals born in the UK every year.

The National Shire Horse Show is a key event to raise awareness of the breed and its important role in the history of Great Britain.
