Pre-Purchase Examinations

Just like any pet, it's possible for a horse to have issues that could cost you in the long run. At Jacksonville Equine Associates, we advise a person to get a pre-purchase examination before buying their horse to know exactly what he or she is getting into.

Why Get a Pre-Purchase Examination

Although no horse is perfect, a pre-purchase examination helps to evaluate a horse for any pre-existing conditions, as well as potential problems. This evaluation checks for any problems that could affect the soundness of a horse. Plus, it can determine if a horse has any problems that could affect the horse's suitability.
