Yes, absolutely. It was worth every penny for the peace of mind. I got Ronan insured and it was included in the PPE; it would have been $100 on its own.

We didn't do one on any of our horses. None had issues that would have been found with a PPE. Of course we have only 8 horses so maybe we were just lucky so far.

If I was buying a performance horse or for shows, I probably would have one done because it would be a bigger investment.

I would never buy a horse without getting a matter if it was just a pasture pet. I want to be sure that there is NOTHING wrong or prone to go wrong in the future. I don't want to get s tuck with a crippled horses and it coming out after it is to late to change my mind. And I don't have any sympathy for people who complain about getting a crippled horse when they didn't get the PPE...their own fault.

I would rather spend the small fee vs eating what I paid for a crippled horse that I can't do anything with. It is really worth it in the long run.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
