Heavy Horse and Country Show 30th April & 1st May 2017

We are delighted to report that we have been offered the opportunity to take over the Blindley Heath Country Show which has been run successfully for the past 11 years by Graham Page and his team at Osney Lodge Farm.
SESHA Heavy Horse and Country Show has been growing from strength to strength each year and the Committee see this as a great step forward which can only benefit SESHA’s aims and objects (as a registered Charity) of promoting the Shire Horse.
The amalgamation of the two shows will without any doubt result in a larger event incorporating all the rural traditions and countryside activities which, together with the heavy horses, vintage tractors, historic vehicles, etc. will create two full days of interest and provide something for all the family to enjoy.
The Show will be known as The Blindley Heath Heavy Horse & Country Show and will continue to be organized on behalf of SESHA by Jackie Shearman, Show Secretary and her team. The date will be 30th April and 1st May 2017 (the first May Bank Holiday Sunday & Monday). The venue will remain at East Bysshe Showground on the A22 between Blindley Heath and Newchapel. Trade exhibitors information will be available shortly and the 2017 Schedule for competitors will be circulated in January. We will of course be writing to all sponsors and members will be receiving a Newsletter within the next few weeks.
These are exciting times ahead and we sincerely hope that you will want to remain part of our Show your support is essential for the continued success of the Show. All relevant information will be published shortly on the merged websites – we will keep you advised of progress. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.
Kind regards
PAUL BOWER (Chairman) and JACKIE SHEARMAN (Show Secretary)


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.
