The Clydesdale Horse Society was initiated on the eve of the Glasgow Stallion Show on the last Tuesday of February 1877.

The Society was formally launched in June 1877.

The first, or retrospective volume of the Clydesdale Stud Book, was published the following December when the breed was already a century and a half old.

Worldwide, there are over seven hundred members of the Clydesdale Horse Society and the majority of the members live within the UK and Ireland. Most of the members are Clydesdale Horse breeders.

The Society maintains an Executive Committee of a President, Vice President, Treasurer and Immediate Past President.

This Committee heads up a Council of forty-nine members with three Council members from fifteen areas. Ireland is represented by two areas, Northern Ireland and the Republic, with three Council members from each of the two areas.

The Society employs a Secretary who oversees the day to day administration of the Society. This includes liaising with the members and non-members, organising the various events run by the Society and compiling the Annual Stud Book.
