10 “Must Haves” When Buying A Horse

Buying a Horse: Your “Must-Have” Checklist

Are you thinking about purchasing a horse?

If this is your first time buying a horse, rushing into a sale can mean a costly mistake. Just like when buying a home, you need to make sure you have done your research and are confident you are making a sound investment. Would you buy a home without inspecting it first? No. Same with a horse. Unless you are highly experienced, you need to hire an agent (just as you would when buying a home) to guide you through the process. But what else is there to consider? What should you look out for?

Cynthia Redwine Martinez, co-founder of Equine Exchange, has put together a checklist of all the “Must-Haves” when buying a horse. We have created an infographic for easy reference and to serve as a checklist for horse buyers.

  1. The infographic that you’ve provided is very helpful; after all, not everyone is going to know what to do when wanting to buy a horse. I think it is particularly great that you bring up the importance of a pre-purchase exam. After all, you will want to make sure that the horse is in good health before you spend a ton of money buying it.
