Fees for your horse when in training
Our training fees are currently £327.81 per week, which equates to £46.83 (+VAT) per day. This figure includes all farrier costs, gallop fees and routine in-house veterinary treatment.
We also have a reduced training fee to cover periods when a horse comes out of training (e.g. through an extended period of injury, or when given a holiday). This is set at approximately half of the normal training fee.
Fees for your horse associated with racing
The ‘inclusive’ nature of our training fees means that frequently the only addition on your bill relates to expenses incurred on a race day. The main one is transport fees. Our horse transport is provided by a locally based-operator. This per mile cost goes up for each additional horse carried, but naturally with more horses on the same journey the cost associated with each individual horse is reduced.
A further cost is staff expenses related to taking a horse racing. These are billed as overtime for the period spent away from the yard, outside of the normal working day, which is set out by The National Joint Council for Stable Staff. They also set the additional costs for racing that involve an overnight stay, Sunday racing and trips abroad.
