We reserve the right to raise the monthly fee by a further maximum of 10 % at any point after your first 6 months of ownership. Please note that the last increase was on the 1st of January 2023 and fees are not expected to go up in the first half of 2024. The maximum raise will only happen if the trainer raises the fees drastically or if the horse moves stables. In the event of any vets/medical fees over £500 in one month all owners will be sent a pro rata share size invoice that must be paid within 30 days of invoice date. In the event of any transport bills exceeding £500 in a single month, the extra transport costs will be split between shareholders.
Monthly fees should be paid by Direct Debit on the 1st of each month until we sell the above horse. Failure to pay for 3 months fees in a row will result in forfeit of your share including the buy in cost. Racing expenses (except BHA expenses) and Vets Fees below £500 are all included in your monthly fee.
