How the Gloucestershire Thoroughbred Agency Works
Here at the Gloucestershire Thoroughbred Agency we get weekly notifications straight from the studs and trainers across the UK and Ireland of horses retiring from the racing circuit or training.
Thoroughbreds are retired for many reasons and mainly because they are to slow for racing.
The Gloucestershire Thoroughbred Agency get sent all their documentation which includes prices, photos, videos and medical histories on each horse. Team GTA then selects horses suitable to our criteria for our buyers which includes health, vices, temperament and conformation.
Once our selection process is completed, we then advertised these horses on our website and social media platforms for buyers, such as yourselves to preview. All horses are open to viewings and vettings, and horses are priced accordingly to training, breeding, conformation and temperament.
The Gloucestershire Thoroughbred Agency handles all enquires, viewings, payments ( we accept debit card and credit card payments ) and transport ( if needed ) on behalf of the buyer and the trainer/owner.
Our horses are sold on with a Non-Racing Agreement as well as Sales Agreement to ensure the safety of our horses and that they are going onto forever and suitable homes. No horse sold through GTA can be sold on or moved around without being relisted with the Gloucestershire Thoroughbred Agency ( This is stipulated in the Sales Agreement ).
The contracts are in place to ensure that if a horse turns out not be suitable in their new home, we can step in and rehome the horse to a more suitable rider.
If you are new to Team GTA, we take exceptional care in making sure the right horses go to the right homes, and we like to keep updated on all our horses and how they are settling into their second careers.
The Gloucestershire Thoroughbred Agency is a registered and fully insured business.
