A general exam is better than nothing, and there are things a vet can pick up in the general exam, such as mild swelling and breathing issues. If you are going to jump a lot or do competition endurance, I would get the X-rays. We got one horse with a thorough exam and one of our horses came with the property we bought. I'll give you one guess as to which horse costs us more to maintain ... yeah, it would be the "Free Horse". Ha ha ha. To her credit, however, she's improving.

Definitely get the vet check. A quick look-see by your farrier isn't a bad idea either if you have one you love and trust and who has the time and is, for once, ON TIME. Ha ha.

Good luck!
