    I'd go and look at him, if you like him, schedule an appointment with the vet. Right then and there. Depending on what price range he's in, you have to decide what you want done.
    I am bringing along the numbers of the vets that are within an hour or so.

    I have never done a PPE before (been about 15 years since I bought a horse!). What should I have the vet do?

    The price on him is currently $1400.

    Hmm.....pretty good price.
    I'd probably think twice about a PPE.......unless there is an obvious lameness or something superficial I can see and what can't be explained logically.

    I remember when in Germany, a serious seller would offer to pay for the PPE if something was found. Don't know about here but I doubt it.
    Not knowing the legal possibilities, I'd say put in contract that that horse is sound, the exact phrasing somebody else could possibly help with, don't sign anything what says "as is".

    Not knowing how much you can see and recognize as potential problems........it's up to you......sorry

    As they claim there is someone else coming out to see him the day after, ask before you go if you can put a $50 deposit on him if you like him, to hold him for a PPE.

    The vet will know what to do on a PPE, don't worry.

    What are you looking for in a horse?

    Do you want a big, fast mover with lots of motion underneath you? Because this guy is it. Just playing the Devil's Advocate. Yes, he's flashy. Yes, he's pretty. But looking at that still photo of him in the canter, it appears as though it'd be quite a rush on his back in that gait.

    The first trot pic looks nice. Calm and balanced. The second trot pic looks entirely different. So, ask yourself what YOU want in a horse. If you want a steady mount that's at the same pace today as he was yesterday, and the same day last month even, this guy might not be for you.

    It doesn't appear as though he neckreins. Everyone in those photos is direct reining him, save for the picture at the bottom where his trot is gigantic and the girl is holding the flag. It might take a two rein hold to keep him back.

    Of course, I could be completely wrong with everything. But those are the cautions (and inconsistancies) I'm getting from the pictures and definitetly something you might want to consider before you get carried away with his purchase.

    I hope that your visit goes well and he turns out to be everything you wanted in him, though He is a very pretty horse.

    I agree & watching the video tells the same story. Almost seems they have done alot of galloping around on this horse & is now programmed that way.For a young horse doing alot of get up & go,he could be one that could take a bit to knock down that, to chill, go quiet & relaxed frame.

    I watched the video, she is neckreining him, but does grab a hold if him more than once.
    As for being inconsistent, he is a 3 year old. IMO he has all the right in the world to be wobbly. He knows too much anyway....again...IMO
    OP has to try him....that's the only way to find out.
    If he wasn't so far away I'd snatch him up

    The trainer told me that he definitely needs work with neck reining and at the canter. She said she does start a horse cantering right away or she's found that horses can have issues wanting to pick it up.

    Honestly, though I do like his looks, they were the last thing I paid attention to. I know he's not perfect, but I'm impressed so far, considering he's only three. I don't think she's run him a lot, I just think he's green and just doesn't know he's supposed to go slowly.

    I just saw the video (skimmed over it when I read the OT and had to go back through it twice to find it hiding!) and I do like him. Honestly, if I were to show pictures of him, I would show pictures of him that represented him as consistantly as he moved in the video. I was pretty thrown off by the pictures.

    I do like the video of him, but I have to wonder if she picked up a real call or if that was a staged call so she could show off that he can be ridden effectively while talking on the phone o_O

    I'm excited for you to look at him. Let us know how it goes! And get pictures!
