Loyalty members will also receive priority VIP invites to events that Horsey People will organise. They will also have access to exclusive giveaways only for loyalty members.

These entries accumulate and are valid for every promotion that Horsey People holds including trade promotions. For details on the promotion please refer to the T&C associated on the relevant promotion.
Loyalty members can upgrade/downgrade as often as they like, each upgrade/downgrade comes into effect on the next billing month.

Please refer to the FAQ in the members portal for an example.
Entries are sent via email, if you do not receive them please check your member dashboard prior to the promotion as entries are removed after each giveaway. If you have not received your entries please contact [email protected]

Terminating your loyalty membership does not remove you from our mailing or text lists, these must be done via the associated links as they are sent via third parties.
In the event of your payment not going through, there are 3 automatic attempts made to bill your account. The system attempts every day for 3 days from initial payment failure. On the 3rd and final attempt, if there are insufficient funds your subscription will be terminated and your loyalty streak lost.
Once a subscription is cancelled Stripe does not allow for the reactivation of that subscription, so all accumulated history for that subscription is lost.
