At Soetendal Estate, we offer full sales preparation, marketing and representation of our clients’ horses at Cape-based sales.

Our preparation starts with a balanced feeding programme and we supplement each horse’s diet according to its individual requirements. Our goal is to turn out horses that display their innate quality and potential. Our experienced farrier, who is an expert on dealing with young horses, inspects the horses’ feet regularly and corrects any deviations as necessary.

No matter how well a yearling is bred, it will only get a handful of opportunities to “show” correctly at sale time so we spend much of our preparation time teaching our horses how to stand, walk and tbashow correctly.

Horses being prepared for Ready-to-Run Sales are brought on slowly, with as much turn-out time as possible. In addition to track work on the farm, the horses are taken to Durbanville to see the grass course before the sale. We aim to produce horses that can show their action, while remaining calm and confident in their work.

We continually evaluate each horse so we can rectify any small problems and ensure the horse is ready to be displayed to its best advantage at the sale.

Our staff take great pride in delivering your young race horse into the sales ring.
