We offer facilities for both permanent and seasonal mares, including foaling facilities. Aquis Farm also offers agistment for weanlings, yearlings and racehorse spellers.

Our goal at Aquis Farm is to provide optimal living and training facilities, with clients confident in the quality of care received by their horses and investments.

Foaling Down

Aquis Farm places great importance on the pre and post-natal care of your foals. Experienced staff work in conjunction with specialists to ensure the foaling down process is as safe as possible without unnecessary interference. Mares are monitored 24 hours a day with assistance available around the clock by our onsite veterinarian. Aquis Farm provides the setting to allow for close monitoring by our farrier and specialists to ensure the foal and mare remain healthy and comfortable after birth. All foal progress is monitored by staff so any corrective work can be performed, ensuring optimal development.

Sales Preparation

The Aquis Farm team is well versed in both modern and traditional aspects of preparing a mare, weanling or yearling for public auction. Our tailored guides to proper nutrition, grooming, exercise, conditioning and education ensures that our horses arrive with the best possible preparation and presentation. We work closely with the veterinarians and the farriers to ensure the highest quality of care is provided to your investment.

Spelling & Pre-Training

In conjunction with experienced staff and veterinarians, graduated programs have been developed for horses either taking a spell from racing or are developing after the breaking in process, as well as sheltered spelling paddocks. Our pre-training facilities offers horses the perfect conditions for a smooth transition into the racing stables.

Re-education & Freshen Up

They say a change is as good as a holiday and sometimes a horse just needs something different to restore its mental health and physical vitality. At Aquis Farm we have a host of assets at our disposal to get your horse back into shape. Whether it be putting the horse over jumps, taking it for rides in the hills, standing it in natural flowing creeks or mustering some cattle, we promise you a changed horse once it has been through our freshen up program.

Retirement

Aquis Farm services are continuous from birth to retirement. We ensure that all horses are nurtured and cared for to the highest standards in the industry. Once a racehorse has been retired, our experienced trainers will carefully assess the horse for retraining in another discipline. Once adequately retrained, the horse is transferred to a suitable equestrian sport home.
