    Default Help!! Where is there a Shire Horse Centre??

    Help!!

    Wendy is over from Denmark in October, and wants to go and see a real life Shire Horse, any one know where there is a good Shire Horse Centre where we can get close to them and if possible touch one.

    I have searched Google but no real answers other than one in Cheshire, and its a little too far, unless i really have too.

    Please Help!! Its the only thing she Really wants to see and do while she is here and i cant seem to find anywhere!!!!

    The only I knew of is the Courage Shire Horse Centre in Maidenhead but I have just checked and its closed :-(

    However, look here and look at the events in October - nearest one to you is the Wisbech Shire Horse Show on the 12th October.

    Look for farm parks or rare breed centre's etc. They often have shire horses or Clydesdales.

    Hi Bigman,

    Many years ago they used to have Shire Horse(s) at Standalone Farm in Letchworth.

    Haven't been there for a good few years though, so couldn't tell you if they still have them.

    Cheers,
    Graham C

    Ben - Mrs D can vouch for the Cheshire one, it is excellent and you can get right up close to the horses - if you were able to travel up this far, you're both more than welcome to stay over at Drinky Towers - the Horse Centre is only a 5 minute drive from us

    Back in a V6 !!!!!!!!!!!! And lovin it !!!

    There's one in Stratford Upon Avon, but no website that I can find. Not sure if it's a better location for you Ben. HTH

    Stratford-upon-Avon Shire Horse Centre, there's contact details here.
