Entering the Major Leagues

Over the past five years show jumping has become a major league money sport, with horses regularly changing hands for well over £2million. As an international buyer, trainer and seller of championship show jumping horses, our clients’ family-run business has built an impeccable reputation for developing just such horses to compete with the best in the world.

Demand for top-level horses has increased due to massive interest from buyers in the Middle East, Russia and the Far East. Our client approached us for help to capitalise on this strong market demand. While historically they had worked on a commission basis, the time had come to find a private investor who could support them with the necessary financial resources to purchase excellent prospects whenever they came available.

We knew we could find a like-minded investor to work harmoniously with our client. We presented the business case to a carefully selected number of investors. Not surprisingly more than one stood out – the prospect of a return on investment of over +50% at regular intervals after 1-2 years generated a great deal of interest.

As is often the case, one individual stood above the others and after a single face to face meeting, terms were agreed. The first horse has already been purchased and we are working on the next two already.

We are thrilled to have delivered an investor who will provide a solid and reliable line of revolving funding on demand leaving our client to retain operational control of the entire process enabling them to purchase the best prospects at the opportune time to develop them into world-class show jumpers for competition.

I’m particularly pleased to have the opportunity to work on this project. The people involved on all sides are a pleasure to work with and we are confident that this will prove to be a very lucrative partnership in the months and years ahead.
