2021 SHOW

The SWSHS Committee would like to thank everyone who attended our show at Bailey Park, Abergavenny on Saturday 24th July 2021.

Thankfully, the bad weather that was forecast didn't materialise and the show was a brilliant success.

We would also like to give HUGE Thanks to the army of volunteers who rolled up their sleeves and helped to make it happen.

A BIG Thank you also, to all the Exhibitors, Traders, Sponsors and VIP guests that supported our show.

We look forward to seeing you all again on
2nd July 2022



CLASSES 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 14 and 15 to qualify

The aim of the BRITISH HEAVY HORSE GRASSROOTS CHAMPIONSHIP is to encourage the more novice or inexperienced exhibitor into the competitive world of showing.  To qualify, neither the exhibitor nor the horse should be entered into any of the Horse of The Year qualifying classes for the 2019 show season.

The highest placed novice competitor will qualify for the British Heavy Horse Grassroots Championship.  This event will be held as part of the Rare Breed Show at Arena UK on 5th October 2019.  This competition is for pure bred horses that are registered in the main British stud books of the Shire, Clydesdale or Suffolk Horses Society. Part bred animals are not eligible to qualify for the championship.

Competitors must be members of either the Shire Horse Society, The Clydesdale Horse Society or The Suffolk Horse Society.  For the avoidance of doubt, as the Percherons are not listed as British Native Rare Breed with the RBST, they are not eligible to join this show/qualification, with the exemption of the British Ridden Heavy Horse Class.

Stallions are not permitted in the British Heavy Horse Grassroots Championship
