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 co-own the very exciting young horses, Marengo Bonaparte and Gryffin de la Rose. They have been a huge support to Laura are very experienced horseman themselves. They are wonderful and positive members of the team.
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.
Holly has handed over the reins of her beautiful mare, Nice, to Laura for the 2021 season whilst she is on maternity leave from riding. Holly and mum, Jill, are always favourites to see on the yard as they bring lots of snacks!
Henrik co-owns our exciting young horse, Marengo Bonaparte. There's some healthy husband and wife competition between their horses!
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.
Carrie co-owns the beautiful, Gryffin de la Rose. There's some healthy husband and wife competition between their horses!
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.
