My instructor said to always bring an unbiased pair of eyes. You are so excited about the horse all you see is the good things as you imagine your future together, you need somebody to see the horse as it is and hopefully find all the flaws because you might glaze over them subconsciously. It is best to bring someone knowledgeable like a trainer/instructor/vet but that isn't necessary, parents work but you have to use your own judgement on whether they will give you an unbiased answer or if they are leaning a certain way going into it.
Hope it works out!

Thanks, my boss is coming with me. We are going about 3 hours away, and only want to make one trip, so we are bringing the trailer. I don't have any shipping boots or bell boots, so it will have to trailer without. The trailer is a nice warmblood sized slant load, so if the horse panicked it could really hurt himself. He comes with a rope halter, but we will switch him to a nylon one.

I am bringing 2 halters for him, different sizes (but still average horse) because I am not sure how big his head is.

I am not getting a PPE done. I know, it is not a good thing to do, and I should have one done, but around here, most people who buy horses don't have one done. When I bought Breeze, I didn't have one done, and she is perfectly healthy. Once he is home, I will have his shots done again (if needed) dewormed again (if needed) teeth done if he has problems eating or drinking, and his feet will be trimmed next month.
