Have you ever wanted to experience the thrill of owning an elite athlete Here's your chance! Rock Solid Training will be selling 49% of both Mr. Indiscretion and Miss Texas. This will allow for five 9.8% shares to be sold. Each share holder will have a one-time buy-in cost, plus a yearly maintenance fee (monthly and quarterly payments are available). Share holders will be listed on the web site and in show programs (when allowed). Additionally, maintenance fees can be tax deductible through the American Horse Trials Foundation. Both of Katie's main competition horses, Mr. Indiscretion and Miss Texas, were located through Katie’s connections with local racehorse trainers. Having known Katie for years, they knew she was the person to make these two horses into stars. We’ve created a flexible program that will allow more people to get involved.
