Shire Horse Show

The Shire Horse Spring Show represents the largest gathering of Shire Horses in the UK and quite possibly the world.

Visitors travel from across the globe for this spectacular event at the East of England Showground Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, which this year promises to be one of the best yet.

Over 200 Shire horses will be featured, all expertly presented and dressed in their traditional glory.

As well as the main highlight – the Shire Horse parades in the Grand Arena on Saturday and Sunday – there will ridden Shire Horse competitions, vintage tractors and farm machinery displays, the largest farriery competition on heavy horses in England and fast and furious dog agility shows.

A Victorian funfair and scores of trade stands, displaying and selling latest products, provide an entertaining interlude to the main events while the food hall will be serving up everything from light refreshments to full-course meals and Sunday Roasts!

If you’re a Shire Horse follower, or someone simply looking for a fabulous family day out, come along, we will be delighted to welcome you.

Peterborough Arena is the ideal location to hold Firework Fiesta due to its location, easy access, large car parks and covered permanent facilities and we find the staff most helpful.
