Prepare the inspection visit

For yearlings and two-year-olds

Once your horse is entered, a member of the ARQANA sales team will come and see it in order to assess its conformation and determine which sale or day of sale will be the most suitable to its profile.
In 2008, 2318 yearlings were inspected, among which 1334 were selected by ARQANA. 515 of them went through the August Sale, 532 through the October Sale and 287 through the December Sale.

When entering a horse

On the entry form, don’t forget to mention the place where the horse will be available for inspection.

Schedule of inspections

An appointment will be made with you at least a week before the inspection. Inspections follow a very tight schedule, with which we ask you to comply.

Please make sure you specify the names of the owner(s), shares of ownership (in case of a partnership), VAT regime and preferred payment method.
