Without owners the sport would not be possible and the riders would not be able to do what they do. Being an event horse owner is an extremely prestigious and fulfilling role where you can achieve competitive goals and make long lasting friendships.
Laura is extremely grateful for the support from her owners
Beccy & Nick Harris
Beccy & Nick are very experienced horseman themselves. They are a great support at all events and are always very positive! They own DHI Topper W who our head girl, Hanna, has on loan.
Natalie joined the team at the end of the 2019 bringing the lovely Chilly Boy II to Laura's yard. Natalie is a very experienced rider herself and has a great eye for a young horse.
Tess and Laura have known each other since their Pony Club days, properly meeting at the Pony Club A Test training in 2016. Laura was thrilled to be asked to take on the ride of Piglet, who Tess has produced from a 4yo to Advanced level as a 9yo.
Henrik owns our new young horse, Marengo Bonaparte. He's looking forward to being an event horse owner and enjoying the more glamorous side to the sport!
Although Paul is mostly at Exeter university he still supports Laura through everything and is seen at all the big summer events, especially when Zorro Rocco is competing.
There are many different options of how you can become an owner or be a part of a syndicate in our team. Laura would be very happy to discuss taking on a horse you already own or to source you a new future star to join the team. If you are interested in knowing more, please get in touch.
Here are some examples of owner opportunities
You are the sole owner of the horse and so pay the livery, training, competition and running costs. You have the greatest recognition of an event horse owner, being publicised by our team and by events in programmes and over the commentary.
Syndicates are an excellent way to be an event horse owner at a fraction of the cost. You buy an agreed percentage share of the horse and pay the equivalent proportion of the running costs. It can be a great way to enjoy the sport with a group of like-minded friends in a real team atmosphere. With a maximum of three owners, each owners name will be recognised as a part owner. If there are four or more owners then a syndicate name will be used to represent all of the owners.
Corporate ownership can be a great marketing tool for your company/business. The company name can be incorporated into the horses competition name, thus bringing exposure when the horse is out competing. With a higher level competing horse comes opportunities for hospitality events in the owners areas and at International competitions for your clients or employees.
