Safeguarding the future

of our Heavy Working Horse breeds
A registered charity dedicated to helping promote and protect heavy working horse breeds

The only charity of its kind in this country, the Trust is run entirely by volunteers and is funded by its own efforts. Despite attempts by the heavy horse community to persuade Government to form National Studs for its rare breeds of equines, as they do on the continent, there is no official funding for the protection of the Shire, Suffolk or Clydesdale. It is left to the breed societies and private owners and breeders to try and halt the decline of the heavy breeds and stave off their eventual demise.
