How much does advertising on Race Horse Trader cost?
Adverts cost just £99 +VAT each

 

Do you offer deals for multiple advertisements?
Yes, we can offer discounted rates for bookings of three adverts or more as long as the order for multiple adverts is placed at the same time. Please call 01483 273377 or 07725 031336 to discuss.

 

Can you source a pedigree page for my horse?
Yes, we source Edited European Pedigree pages from Weatherbys. There is an additional charge of £10 +VAT for this service. Alternatively, we can attach pages from online sale catalogues free of charge where available. 

 

How long does my advert stay on the website?
Your advert stays on the Race Horse Trader website one year from the date that it is placed, unless you request for it to be removed. Sold horses will be marked as such. 

 

Can I make changes to my advert?
Yes, you can make an unlimited number of changes to your advert via your Seller Account. Alternatively, we can update your advert for you. Please email your changes to support@racehorsetrader.com. Updates are free of charge.

 

How do you know when a horse has been sold?
We rely on sellers to communicate news of a sale, or to login to their Seller Account, to update the status of their advert.

 

What is the average response rate per advert?
Response rates are unique to each individual advert and it is impossible to give an average. Response rates vary according to a number of factors such as: price, success of the horse (if raced), pedigree and the quality of images and videos. THE MORE REALISTIC YOU ARE AT PRICING YOUR HORSE, THE MORE LIKELY YOU ARE TO FIND A BUYER. See our Advertising Tips page for examples of best practice, and for tips on how to increase your response rate.

 

Can I advertise my Racing Club or Syndicate?
The Race Horse Trader website is currently structured to advertise individual horses only. If the horse forms part of a Racing Club or Syndicate then details of how to join can be included within the advert copy. However, we will only publicise images, videos, pedigree and racing record for one horse per advert.

In addition to horse adverts, you may set up a Seller Profile, to be included within our Horse Racing Directory and at the foot of your horse adverts, which will provide general information on your Racing Club or Syndicate, plus links to your website and social media profiles.

 

How do I know if a prospective buyer is genuine?
We encourage all Sellers to adopt safe selling practices when advertising their horses online. Never arrange to deliver a horse without first receiving cleared payment from the Buyer. We recommend that Sellers always try to meet the Buyer or their representative before completing any sale.

Also be aware of other potentially fraudulent practices, such as email phising and scams. Never provide online login details for your Race Horse Trader account to anybody who requests them - we will never ask for your password, and we do not store them online. Also, be wary of enquirers who send you links via email, or who request payment details without viewing your horse or meeting you in person.

We monitor all incoming mail and will alert Sellers to any suspected suspicious activity wherever possible.
