  • Hire a Shire helped make our wedding really magical. Any stress of the day just disappeared with the calm energy of the horses. They were so gentle, kind and relaxed. I booked because I felt they added a Wow! factor to our photos, I had no idea that their peaceful natures and fun spirit would influence the day quite so much. Thank you so much Ruth and horsey gang!
