My advice would be to contact the veterinarian you are thinking of using and ask directly as there is a wide range of things that can be done and prices to go along with that. As a veterinarian, I always recommend my clients ride the horse a few times before having a prepurchase as you'll have a better understanding of the horse. I also, always recommend a prepurchase exam regardless of cost. The purchase of the horse is the least expensive part of owning a horse, and things you find on the prepurchase will gie you a better understanding of what that horse may need in the future to perform the task you are looking for it to do. A prepurchase may save you thousands in future costs by finding potential problems.
