When planning your yearling’s preparation it is necessary to plan each yearling individually and perhaps group similar formed yearlings for different sales.
Your horse’s preparation should be tailored to its needs, conformation and marketability.
The first step in preparing a yearling for sale is to get the horse fit before selling. This can be done by giving the horse a short break after its racing career, before starting any conditioning work. During this time you should also be looking at what your horse will need to do during the sales preparation process.
When conditioning a yearling for sale it is important that you consider their fitness levels as well as their body condition and weight loss goals. You will also want to consider if they have any injuries or problems that might affect their ability to work out properly during this time period.
