Purchasing a horse as an investment
The national and international equestrian sport sector has expanded continuously over the last two decades as a result of globalisation. In fact, it has evolved from a sport into a genuine industry: the ‘horse industry’. No other sector has experienced comparable high rates of growth and our industry even continued to grow during the recession. Around ten years ago, Europe and North America were the main equestrian sport regions. In recent years, the sport has also become very popular in the Near East, Asia, Russia and South America. This has boosted the demand for horses, especially show jumpers. At the same time, the main breeding countries of Germany, the Netherlands and France have recorded
declining breeding rates, which means that there will be fewer horses on the market in future. This increase in demand and decline in supply has driven up prices for professionally schooled show jumpers with competition experience. Successful Grand Prix horses are currently selling for prices up to five million Euros. These horses all began their careers as novices at the age of 4 to 6 and this is time to invest. Investors profit from my many years of experience as an international show jumper and my international show jumping horse sales network.
Currency, stock market and commodity crises and declining prices are unsettling investors around the world. In times like these, an investment in a young horse with great potential is lucrative, comparatively safe and provides excellent profit opportunities. The stock market rule of ‘never lose money’ may be somewhat utopian, but it should be high on your list of priorities when you’re considering an investment in a young horse. Many investors have chosen this option in the past and the ten most successful of them sold their horses at a profit of between 20 and 1,000 %. They purchased the horses at my auctions, left the horses in training and sold them when they had reached a more advanced level. These horses are now very successful competition horses with their new owners. Another important consideration is that this investment strategy offers the investor tax benefits.
