FENCES SELECTIONS

HOW DOES IT WORK?

THE REGISTRATION

The selections are open to all, free of charge. Registration is mandatory in order to ensure the smooth running of the tours.

To register your horse for the selection rounds, simply complete the registration form corresponding to the category of your horse (3 & 4 years old, foal, embryo, performer or broodmare).

Once you have completed the registration form, you will receive a confirmation email. The Fences office will get back to you a few days before the chosen selection date to inform you of your time slot.

ON SELECTION DAY

Ideally, your horse should be groomed. The videos and photos of the selections will be used to promote your horse for the auction.

1. When you arrive, report to the Fences office (usually located at the entrance to the arena) with the horse’s booklet. We will give you the exact number of horses that are still to go before you.

2. When you enter the arena, a completed information sheet and your horse’s booklet will be given to the Fences Associates.

3. The presentation begins with the evaluation of the origins, the model and the legs. The Fences associates will ask you to stop your horse in the middle of the arena and then walk and trot in a straight line.

4. Time to jump! Your horse will be set free to practice a few jumping sequences on the obstacles shown below. The Fences team takes care of everything.

The height and width of the obstacles will be adapted to the abilities of each horse.

5. Once the presentation is complete, the Fences associates will return to you before you leave the arena with one of the following answers:

• Your horse is not retained for auctions

• Your horse is selected for the Deauville Selection Auction on July 5, 2022

• Your horse is selected for the Fences Elite Auctions from August 30 to September 4, 2022

 

IF YOUR HORSE IS SELECTED

If your horse is selected for one of our auctions, you will be able to discuss with the Fences associates the Estimated Value of your horse. This is the minimum price you wish to sell for. We recommend that you think about this before the selection to facilitate the agreement.

Once an agreement is reached, only two steps remain:

1. A visit to the Fences office to formalize the registration for the sale. You will then have to sign the auction mandate, the guarantee voucher and the veterinary protocol.

2. A mandatory visit to the Fences veterinarian for your horse. Here, two options:

You may present an existing radiographic record consisting of 20 x-rays and dated after March 1, 2022. The veterinarian will validate that the radiographic file presented is complete and will check the heart and eyes of your horse.

• If you do not have this assessment, no problem, our veterinarian will perform on site the 20 mandatory pictures for the sum of 333€ exc. taxes.

That’s it for the selections! For the rest, the Fences office will come back to you as we go along until the auction.

Our team is at your disposal to answer all your questions and to accompany you in the selection process. Do not hesitate to write to us at contact@fences.fr or to call us at +33 2 31 90 93 24.
