Arena UK in Allington is set to host this year’s Shire Horse Society National Show, the largest for this breed in the world.
The show will be held for the first time on March 22 and 23 at the arena near Grantham. Visitors will be able to see hundreds of magnificent Shire horses as well as a variety of demonstrations, trade stands and competitions. The National Shire Horse Show raises awareness of what the society does for the endangered breed.
David Ralley-Davies, secretary of the Shire Horse Society, said: “We’re very excited about moving to Arena UK in Lincolnshire, which is a purpose-built equestrian centre that can accommodate a growing show such as ours. We believe that visitors, owners and the horses, of course, will very much enjoy the show’s new setting.
“Now that the show is on their doorstep we do hope locals will support it. This event is the best display of Shire horses in the country and an opportunity for people to see the breed in all its glory.”
