About our subscription service

When you sign up to our monthly subscription service, the minimum term for membership is 12 months.  At the end of your initial 12 month contract, your membership and / or horse registration will be automatically renewed, meaning you can continue to compete in the relevant competitions associated with your membership, as well as receive all of your membership benefits.

We’ll send you a reminder six weeks before your auto renewal takes place, giving you the opportunity to cancel if you wish or switch to an annual payment.  To cancel your auto renewal, simply provide us with notice of your wish to cancel at least 14 days prior to the end of your contract by email or letter.

Once your initial 12 month contract has come to an end you’ll move on to a rolling membership subscription, which you can cancel at any time by giving us 14 days’ notice in writing by letter or email.
