What we do

The Racehorse Owners Association (ROA) has over 8,000 members and promotes and protects the interests of racehorse owners in Great Britain. Since 1945 we have been making members' racehorse ownership
more cost-effective and enjoyable.

Absolutely anyone can join the ROA. Our membership benefits suit any level of ownership, and those who don't have a horse in training.
