Our pre-purchase/vet exams cover quite a bit and you'll know if there are any issues you need to be aware of prior to buying the horse. You can as far as getting x-rays but most just get flex test and the other basics.
You should always always always get a vet check no matter how much the horse costs.
Wanted to add there aren't any exams out there that could possibly guarantee the future health of the heath of horse. Anything can happen down the road. But an exam is your best way of knowing at the time of the exam what is going on. Your vet might be able to let you know what the horse could be prone too but that's about it as far as what the future holds.
