I bought very few horses over the years, but sold many, having raised them
I always encouraged buyers to get a PPE, as I was not a horse flipper, someone trying to make a one time sale on a horse they no longer wanted, but a breeder, whose reputation relies on happy customers.
There is also the fact,a s a breeder, I had a bottom line as to what a horse was worth, after looking after the broodmare well, that foal, raising it until it was three and started under saddle
Yup, people can look for bargain horses at local auctions, at someone who just wants to sell one horse they no longer need, willing to sell that horse cheap, and sometimes those buyers got lucky , but often the fact remains, you get what you pay for , and by buying from those whose reputation is linked to the horses they raise
Sorry, but felt I had to add this other aspect, which is directly related to the many posts on bad horse buying experiences.
