Whether you are buying a competition horse or a children’s pony, it is still important to check the horse’s health.
We recommend that, at the time of vetting, a blood sample is taken and stored at an independent laboratory in Newmarket, which can later be tested for the presence of any drugs that may have altered the horse’s soundness or temperament if a problem were to arise once the horse is home.
Further investigative tests may be recommended depending on any findings during the examination, these can include x-rays, endoscopy or scans. Many high value horses are required to have a standard set of x-rays taken for insurance purposes.
Speak to the vet about any concerns, and they will be able to advise you appropriately.
