Prepping Your Horse for the Sale
is a fine art that the team at E.A. Ranches has cultivated to perfection. Whether weanling, yearling, racing prospect or breeding stock, the main elements of nutrition, grooming, farrier work, exercise and show training are skillfully matched to present your horse at his best during the sale.
Like with breaking and training, the E.A. Ranches’ sales-prep approach is not a “one size fits all”, but strictly individualized. Based on each horse’s conformation, metabolism, age, gender and personality, the sales-prep plan tailors nutrition, exercise, farrier work and show training to each of their individual needs. The only constant for all sales candidates is daily dedicated grooming. Bathing with shampoo, however, is limited to once a week in order to keep the coat shiny and the horse’s natural skin protection intact.
As a matter of principle, E.A. Ranches does not consign client horses at the sales, but utilizes the experience of the best and most reputable consignors for each respective sales venue. Over the years, many horses sales-prepped by E.A. Ranches have successfully graduated from all major sales nationwide.
