    It is a trainer listing, not a horse owned by Canter...not sure if that is still the policy.

    Look under their FAQ section. Guess some may let you, others may not.

    A PPE will/should include Xrays and blood work. Quite expensive usually.. and an exam that discusses why he is stiff behind to boot. The exam may well run $300 to $500. That is a lot.. and it may get you not buying the horse. HOWEVER, if the horse is mechanically unsound for some reason, fixing or maintaining can run into thousands of dollars.

    A favorite saying of mine when looking at an Ex Racehorse GELDING is you can't race the papers... you got to race the horse.

    I think I would be really put off travelling that far - or paying for a PPE - for a horse I couldn't sit on - obviously the sitting on bit wouldn't apply to a youngster - but some OTTB's can be so wired when they get a rider on them they never really work for dressage and can take ages to settle down

    OTTBs can definitely be a lot of work to recondition... But I like them 8D

    So do I - my early years were spent hanging out on a racing yard as my Grandfather was an enthusiast, the first horse I ever sat on - too young to even remember was a chestnut TB mare!!!
    They can have so much scope and courage but they can also come with an awful lot of mental and physical baggage
