Welcome to the Sugarloaf Shires website...

We currently have 15 Shire horses with plans for more.

Our slogan is Working Companions to convey our belief that Shire horses should both work with us and be our companions, as they were before the days of the tractor changed the way heavy horses in particular are used.

All of our Shires, even our breeding mares, undergo training for pulling implements and vehicles.  We believe it is important that the traits that make this breed what they are, are preserved, and this can only be achieved by knowing what both the mare and stallion can do.

We do not simply keep them as pets, nor only show them as 'dogs on a lead' as we believe this is a disservice to the character and integrity of the breed, indeed of all heavy horses.
