Pre-Purchase Examinations


No search for the perfect equine partner is complete without a thorough pre-purchase exam. While a pre-purchase evaluation does not guarantee soundness for the career of the horse, it is an excellent way to screen your potential purchase for orthopedic or soft tissue injuries, conformational concerns or other medical issues that may prove detrimental to a successful career. All of our basic pre-purchase exams include a thorough physical examination, an ocular exam, musculoskeletal evaluation and soundness evaluation with flexions, all with the intended use of the horse in mind. Diagnostic imaging, including digital radiography and ultrasonography, is also available and encouraged.
