A pre-purchase exam is an important step that is often overlooked when buying a horse, when in fact, this is the most crucial expense a horse owner should make. Whether you want a horse as a family pet or a high performance athlete, your best chance of getting one that meets your needs is to invest in a pre-purchase exam.
