The yearling sales preparation is the final touch of commercial breeding. It is a 2.5 to 3 year process from the initial mating to offering the horse in the ring. At Haras du Buff we like to make our horses bomb proof and user friendly to facilitate the work of the future breaker and trainer. During the preparation our horses are groomed and exercised daily. From hand walking to treadmill to circular walker and lunging, our team of horsemen will work to strengthen and educate our horses in the most relaxed environment. In the summer all our yearlings will still be turned out each night and they will go out at least 4 hours a day during the autumn. In the long run we know that a more natural approach will often produce better racehorses.
