The regional association (South West) club of the UK wide Sport Horse Breeding of Great Britain (which itself has charitable status and was founded in 1886 as H.I.S.; Patron Her Majesty The Queen) is often referred to by acronym as SHB (GB). Hence the name of our club/branch South West SHB(GB) which is the brainchild of Charles Upham. Its purpose is to promote and celebrate the breeding and competing of horses in the South West of the UK. Particularly counties Devon, Somerset, Cornwall and Dorset. The inaugural show and training clinic formally launched the regional club on April 2019 at Bicton Arena.
The committee of South West SHB (GB) themselves are enthusiastic owners, exhibitors and breeders of show horses and enjoy some success doing so. They are a friendly, approachable team and eager to promote enjoyment of horses with members and non-members alike.
