BHA registration discounts

ROA members receive a 20% discount on many BHA registration fees. This works out as an average saving of £75 per member.

If you are a sole owner, the discount will be applied to all relevant fees as listed below.

If you are involved in a Club or a Syndicate then the majority of the club/syndicate managers will need to be members of the ROA in order for the discounts to be applied.

If you are involved in a partnership, then the relevant proportion of the discount is applied based on the number of owners who are ROA members:

  • If the fee is a horse-specific one e.g. naming, then this is done based on the percentage of the horse owned by ROA members.  For example, if 75% of the horse is owned by ROA members then 75% of the discount will be applied.
  • If the fee is non horse-specific e.g. registration of colours, then this is done on the number of partners who are ROA members.  For example, if 2 out of the 3 partners are ROA members, then 66% of the discount will be applied, regardless of the actual ownership percentages.
  • Please note that an Authority to Act is registered to an individual and not an ownership entity and therefore this discount will only be applied if the applicant is an ROA member.

Below is a selection of registration fees with the ROA member discount applied. If you have a query relating to a fee that is not listed here please email info@roa.co.uk
