For many years, Brian and Liz Gates have kindly run a volunteer Helpline from their own home to advise and support anyone who has a question about the Irish Draught horse or the Society.  

With Brian’s imminent retirement from our Council after 25 years of service, the Helpline will be closed from Monday 20 March 2023. 

There are several ways in which you can contact the Society: 

By telephone: Our administration office can be contacted on 01768 870523
(Mon – Fri: 9.00am – 5.00pm) 

by Email:

Or you can complete the online form on our website at, which will be directed to the most appropriate person to help you.  

Thank you for your cooperation.
