Western Counties Heavy Horse Society was founded in 1975 by a group of heavy horse enthusiasts. The first meeting was held in a local pub. The society is one of the oldest heavy horse society’s in the country and from its humble beginnings went from strength to strength, holding two main events a year and this continues to this day. Although lately membership numbers have declined through dwindling interest in heavy horses and the working of them, this is a trend shown throughout all the heavy horse society’s in the country. We are constantly looking for new members, both horse owners and people with a passion for these wonderful animals.
