We are pleased to vet horses prior to purchase for clients and those who are not existing customers of the practice.
John Dunsford has over twenty years’ experience in pre-purchase examinations, which are always thorough, but also independent, realistic, and well-reasoned in their advice.
We offer five-stage examinations only for the purchase of horses as the two-stage insurance examination, which does not include seeing the horse exercised, is in our experience inadequate and not in the client’s best interest.
Our vetting price is all-in and includes taking a blood sample and travelling, unless the examination is well out of area in which case we will add some additional mileage. Please check with the practice for costs.
Pre-purchase examinations need the use of a darkened stable to look at the horse’s eyes, a flat, level yard or a quiet road for trot-ups, and a good surface or school for ridden exercise. Alternatively, we can examine horses at our clinic using our own school.
