Overall we find our clients increasingly more and better informed about specific and technical information, leading to a much better care of the animal. That’s why we feel obliged to raise the standard and develop, according to criteria implemented in the United States, an Annual Equine Report.

  • Vaccination

We provide and strongly recommend annual vaccination for your horse for tetanus and Influenza. Horses that compete in national competitions (FEP) will need a bi-annual vaccination to be able to compete.

6. Pre and Post Purchase Check-up:

We can help potential buyers to make a more informed decision regarding the purchase of a horse by providing them with:

  • A complete and thorough medical exam with specific recommendations.
  • An assessment to establish if the animal has any type of pathology that would impair his intended use or family integration.
  • Advice and guidance on the correct care and management of the new animal from a medical, nutritional, and educational point of view.
