We are offering you different types of assessment according to your needs.

OVERALL ASSESSMENT

This assessment refers to the overall study of the horse that you have already chosen/selected and that you wish to know more about. If you feel that the videos that they have shown you don’t give you enough information or you do not totally convince you, this assessment will provide you with all the information that you need

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT

We also offer you a continuous assessment service adapted to your needs including a permanent dialogue with you for commenting on or checking its progress.

COMPARATIVE ASSESSMENT

If you are interested in having information about two or more horses, we will make the pertinent assessments so that you can choose the horse which is most suitable for your needs.
