PPE: Pre or Post Trial?
The horse I'm interested in currently is located a good 1 and a half hours away from where I live, and longer from where the vet I use is. I know dragging them all the way out there would seriously crank up the price tag of the PPE, and I was wondering if it would be worth my time to, since I found a nice trailering price, take the horse on trial and then have it vetted so that it's more convenient for me and my vet.
I understand that if there are any serious faults I will have to pay to have it trailered back, however if it does work out it could save me a lot of time and money. Any thoughts?
