A horse walker is used in the sales fitness preparation in conjuction with many hours of grooming, walking and standing the horses. With many contacts within the industry it is made sure that as many potential buyers look at the horses as possible. All of the horses are fed on Conollys Red Mills feed and monitored regularly by Red Mills consultant Victoria Jones to ensure a high quality of bone growth and cover, particularly in youngstock.
