Jason Tupper and Samantha Castle from the RVC Equine Practice have a wealth of experience in vetting horses and assessing their suitability for purchase. In this lecture, they talk about the potential pitfalls of buying a horse and give you lots of top tips on what questions to ask, what you must look out for, and what things to check, when trying horses to potentially purchase.

They also describe what is involved in 2 and 5 stage vetting examinations, the pros and cons of additional x-rays, and why blood samples are essential.
