Gatton Heavy Horse Field Day - Clydesdale and Heavy Horse Field DayWith worldwide uncertainties about Corona virus, and the importance of isolation and keeping healthy, plus the latest press release from EA/EQ who cover the event for insurance purposes, the committee have made the decision to cancel the event.

This decision has been made in the best interest of member safety and community wellbeing.

Equestrian Queensland strongly recommends that organising committees should not hold equestrian events or club activities for the next four weeks.

In the near future, refunds for entries will be issued to competitors and stallholders.

We thank you all for your understanding and let's make 2021 bigger and better!

Show in front of world renowned judges without leaving home!

The Shire Horse Breeders committee is delighted to announce we will be running a points based All Australian Digital Heavy Horse Show!!

The decision to do so is our way of supporting the heavy horse community so that exhibitors who intended to compete at large public events this season still have an opportunity to show off their horses!

We’ve lined up three prestigious international judges - Matthew Bedford (UK), Charlotte Young (UK) and Robert Detweiler (USA).

With classes for registered Shires,Clydesdales & Percheron’s.

Entries are now open and will close on 15th April 2020.

Winners will be announced as quickly as possible, however it will take some time for the judges to be sent the entries and make their assessment.

Entry Guidelines:

Each class entry will be $10. Classes will have cash prizes for first, second and third place - $15, $10 & $5 respectively.

All entries must be submitted with five photographs of the horse - front, back, both sides and trotting across the camera.

The horse should be fully prepared and decorated as normal for the show ring.

Novelty class: please submit one or two photos of your exhibit that best show it off.

All photos must be current and taken in good light and clear surrounds to enable judges to see as much as they can without interference.

Photos are to be submitted with entry forms via email to or via PM to the Shire Horse Breeders Facebook page.

Terms & Conditions:

The entrant must own the horse or have the full permission of the owner of the horse to enter this competition.

Photographs must be submitted by the entry deadline to be accepted for judging - no late entries will be allowed.

All photographs must be current - the committee will accept show photos from the current show season where applicable, but encourages exhibitors to submit new photos captured in the entry timeline. If from a show, photographs should not contain any ribbons or rosettes.

Photos may not be accepted if they are pixelated, blurry, in low resolution or otherwise difficult to assess.

Where possible the committee will notify entrants in this case to give them a chance to resubmit.

Any photos suspected of being altered from the original in any way will be disqualified (photoshop etc).

Exhibits must be fully prepared and decorated as normal for the show ring for that breed.

All exhibits must be registered with the relevant breed society.

Entries will only be eligible for competition once payment is received by Shire Horse Breeders.

The entrant grants the Shire Horse Breeders full permission to use the entry photographs in promotional materials.
The committee reserves the right to disqualify any exhibitors/exhibits that do not meet the above terms and conditions.

With the recent cancellation of many shows due to Covid-19 Virus, the Shire Horse Breeders committee has had our thinking caps on...
How can we support our community in showing their horses, without anyone leaving home?!
We’ve come up with a great idea that the committee is currently working on. Watch this space over the weekend for a big announcement!!

Here's a great shot of a very happy Molly Post, who won the Novice Handler! How about that grin?

Molly is pictured with judge Rob Ronzio, Shire mare Chevalier Lady Ellanor and the John Savage Perpetual Trophy.

She also won the Senior Handler/Best Showman class and snagged herself a couple of great Horseland prize bags.

We love seeing the next generation in the ring - congratulations Molly!
