Our procedure for new and incoming mares is designed with safety, efficiency, and value in mind.
In order to understand a mare’s cycle, and therefore when covering will be safest and most effective, mare’s will be ‘tried’ or ‘teased’ with the stallion.
Once a mare comes into season she will be covered by the stallion.
At 13 days after the first covering a scan required for pregnancy, this being the earliest point at which conception can be recorded.
Two further scans will be taken after this initial scan in order to certify that the mare is pregnant and does not ‘re-absorb’ as well as the vital checking for twins, which thoroughbred horses are unlikely to deliver successfully.
These scans take place at 21 and 28 days after the first covering at which point mares may return to their owners.
Below is a list of requirements that we insist you undertake before sending your mare:
