The Sledmere Shires

Southram Diana

Sledmere's first shire horse: Diana loves nothing more than showing off.  She can regularly be seen around the grounds pulling her tip cart and helping out with any jobs she can.  You may also see her out with Poppy; they started working together in April 2018 and are proving to be a star pair.  Diana loves nothing more than being out of her stable meeting and greeting or working.


Camalter Poppy

Our most typical shire; a proper gentle giant who will stand at her stable door all day being cuddled.  Poppy is happy that she has moved to Sledmere to live with Diana after spending most of her early years with her.  Poppy can be seen working an a pair in the grounds, either with her Mum, Amy or her idol, Diana.


Camalter Amy Louise

Our oldest shire; Amy has been there and done it, including weddings and film work.  She is now welcoming an easier life at Sledmere but will still be seen driving around the grounds, either with Poppy or on her own, just at a slightly more laid back pace.  As well as being a great driving horse, Amy has had a number of foals before joining us, her last being Poppy.
