The South Shore Horsemen's Council was started over 40 years ago to join together horse enthusiasts of all riding disciplines and of all ages to promote, exhibit and honor the practices of good horsemanship and good sportsmanship.
The current club has almost 300 members from all over Massachusetts and New England.
The club runs three NEHC and MHC rated shows and one affiliated show every year. These multidiscipline shows are open to members and nonmembers alike.
The shows offer English, Western and Saddle Seat classes for Pleasure and Breed specific divisions, as well as Hunter and Equitation divisions.
Riders that are members of SSHC can accumulate points at each show to count towards year end championships and awards. These championships are presented at our annual awards banquet.
SSHC is proud to educate, inform and support all of its members as they become more involved in the horse community.
Scholarships are offered to our youth membership to encourage higher education.
Thank you to all of our members, volunteers and sponsors for your continued support.
Please refer us to others as we are always accepting new members to the club.

SSHC exists because of volunteers. The show season was made possible because of those who generously donate their time to the club. We are in need of more members to become involved with SSHC and volunteer to keep the club going strong. We cannot do it alone; please come, volunteer and help support your club.
Your generous sponsorships will help us to put on quality equine events and guarantee prize money and "AA" points to our competitors. They also provide a great exposure and advertising opportunity as we help promote your business.
Your participation in the SSHC Series is very much appreciated.
