Pre-Purchase Exams for Horses


I’ve had several questions about pre-purchase exams for horses.

There are a lot of opinions as to whether pre-purchase examinations are necessary. Some people believe that if the purchase price is low, these exams are not important. There are many levels and types of pre-purchase exams, from inexpensive to very expensive. It is our belief that some type of pre-purchase exam should be done, regardless of the purchase price.

This link gives a very good explanation about pre-purchase exams, how they can be custom-tailored, and the various things that are involved in the extensive exams.
