SESHA Heavy Horse & Country Show


It is with the deepest regret that following the Government’s guidance announced on 16th March 2020 it has been decided that the South Eastern Shire Horse Association (SESHA) Heavy Horse & Country Show due to take place on 2nd & 3rd May 2020 will be cancelled.

This decision has not been taken lightly but it is felt we have a duty of responsibility towards all competitors, exhibitors, volunteers etc.

In addition, it is highly unlikely that any or many members of public will venture out to events, large or small. It may only be a matter of time before the Government imposes a complete ban on such events.

It is obviously essential we all comply with the Government requests by reducing contact between people to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Over the next few days we will be contacting everybody who was due to take part at the Show.

May we take this opportunity of thanking you all for your kind support and look forward to seeing you in 2021 (date to be agreed)

With thanks for your understanding.

Show Secretary

The South Eastern Shire Horse Association

The South Eastern Shire Horse Association was formed in 1983 by a group of likeminded people to further the knowledge, understanding and love of this fine breed of horse.

The Association encourages and supports competitive endeavour, responsible ownership and breeding, our members are often found at shows with their animals showing in hand, turnout and ridden.

You do not have to be a horse owner to join the association; enthusiasts are welcome for their input and support.

SESHA, covering Surrey, Sussex and Kent, believe in responsible ownership and competition to keep the shire breed and ploughing horses strong and continuing for generations to come.
Visit SESHA in Surrey to learn more about shire breeding, working horse displays, horse competitions, sheepdog display and country stalls. There is a special selection of vintage cars too.
