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:
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.
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
TBA Racecourse Badge Scheme for Breeders (RBSB)
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 apply for the scheme to be eligible. Once approved, successful applications will run for the duration of TBA membership and will only require updating when a member registers or joins a new breeding entity/partnership.
The TBA hold two stallion parades annually, one in January during the Goffs UK January Sale (23rd-24th January 2018) for the National Hunt Stallions and then in February at Tattersalls for the Flat Stallions (1st-2nd February 2018).

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.
