The Shire Horse Society Australia Inc aims to promote and encourage the magnificent Shire Horse in Australia.

New members are very welcome and all members receive regular newsletters, by a choice of either email or hard copy (extra fees apply for hard copy) and have on-line access to The Australian Shire Horse Stud Book. All members are invited, also, to attend our social gatherings, seminars and meetings.

In addition, all members have access to members’ only information and features on our website, including the ability to advertise (for free) horses for sale, stallion services, or any other horse related or unrelated items. Members can also create their own stud page within the SHSA website for promoting any aspect of their stud’s operations to both other members and the general viewing public.

Membership Categories

The Society has Ordinary Membership for those who own a Shire Horse and Associate Membership for those who plan to own a Shire Horse in the future, or are just interested in the breed.

Membership fees are very reasonable at $40 for Ordinary and Associate Members and just $10 for Junior Members. We look forward to meeting you as a new member.

N.B. Access to The Australian Shire Horse Stud Book is only open to Ordinary Members of The Society.
