Organize in Advance Which Horses You Would Like to Test
1. Have your horses' information ready to register, any pertinant owner and trainer info, a method of payment, and the ability to pull a good sample of hair (30-40 hairs from mane or tail WITH roots - more is better).
2. Be sure you have access to your email (so we can confirm you're not a robot) and a printer.
3. Have a clean envelope and postage ready to seal the form and horse hair/DNA sample inside.

What to Expect
As we are a boutique business and our testing process (and your equine DNA sample) has multiple checks in place to ensure that the results provided are as accurate as possible. You can expect results for your DNA panel in 7-10 working days from the time we begin processing the sample in our laboratory. Samples begin processing on Monday of each week. Testing results will be provided via an email (PDF) and uploaded to your online account (if you choose to enroll).
Pricing: Our current pricing model includes the comprehensive DNA Minipanel which includes 50+ traits specified on our "Services" page for $119 per individual horse. Or the DNA Minipanel PLUS which includes Warmblood Fragile Foal Syndrome and more. We do offer Couture Services for specialized breeding or interests (we can even drive or fly to your barn and guide you through the process and do all of the work for you). Please feel free to inquire about group discounts or special services, as we are happy to help!
