Enjoy a unique visit to discover the hardly accessible world of horse sales! Take a tour of the backstage of horse sales with a tour guide to retrace the history of Deauville sales, discover what buyers do and how horses are examined before heading towards the presentation ring.
In the stable yards, the tour guide presents the sale catalogue which buyers consult to find the key information about the horses present including: pedigree, line of descent, performances and records. The horses out of their boxes are carefully examined by buyers before heading towards the presentation ring. There, visitors can discover handheld horses and watch how they move.
The tour ends in the auction hall, an essential stage of the auction, where everyone has a specific role. The auctioneer orchestrates the sale with the spotters that, placed around the ring, wait for the slightest move of buyers to spot an offer.
