Events and badges

Being a TBA member enables you to meet fellow breeding or racing enthusiasts. Throughout the year the TBA organises and hosts a number of exclusive events for members to enjoy, these range from visits to yards right through to our annual awards reception.

Through your membership you will have access to all of the following:

Regional Days

There is a very popular programme of Regional Days organised by the TBA thorough out each calendar year. These events often include visits to trainers yards and stud farms and are a great way of meeting like-minded people from your area and visiting places which you might not necessarily get the chance to under normal circumstances.

Regional Days are open to all members of the TBA irrespective of their location. However, priority will be given to those members residing within the region should the day be oversubscribed.

Further details will be published in the Thoroughbred Owner & Breeder magazine and on this site nearer the time of each event.

Race Badges

The TBA also has promotions or free entrance to certain race fixtures or discounts on race badges and will contact members by email regarding these as and when opportunities arise. Please ensure the TBA office have your correct email address so that you don’t miss out on any offers

Breeders Badge Scheme

TBA members are entitled to FREE Racecourse entry to watch, horses they have bred but no longer own, run at over 1,000 fixtures at racecourses in Great Britain. Members must re-apply for the free scheme annually.


The TBA hold two stallion parades annually, one in February at Tattersall for the Flat Stallions and then in November at Cheltenham Racecourse for the National Hunt Stallions.

Annual Events – Awards Reception, AGM and Seminar

Our annual Awards Reception is held during July week every year and is a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the successes of the season. This is usually held around the same time as our AGM and Annual Seminar. Please keep an eye out for further communications and details on each event
