How do you buy a HorseWhat is the best way to buy a horse?
There are seven regulations for the purchase of a horse - David Ramey, DVM
I' ve had the occasion to perform many pre-sales/pre-sales checks, you know, the testing you are almost obligated to plan before you make one of the most important buys (in term of timing and financial commitment) in your being. And frankly, I'm totally amazed at what's going on in the selling proces.
But I think that an exam on the horse that you want to buy is quite important (an exam on the horse: your other important one might think you need to have your mind examined), and especially for someone relatively new to the game.
But there is a whole amount of rubbish that can go on during the purchase of a horse. This is where to buy seven life buy regulations when it comes to purchasing a horse. Believe me, there are many out there. If you buy a horse, you must bear in mind that you are under a great deal of responsibility (pun intended).
When you buy a horse, you could go for food and rations, saddle and education, and horse shows, and horseshoes, and vets, and keepers, and carers, and brushers, and sprayers, and sprays, emollients, and lotions, and these oh-so-pretty plaid leggings that you horse will not be able to be able to survive without.
Considering what else you will spent, make sure you spent the rest of your life getting what you want. Horseback that horse as often as you can. Look to see if you can take him to where you will keep him - sometimes the horse behaves very differently when in unaccustomed environments.
No matter what demands you make on a horse, meet them: Then consider purchasing! Not looking for a horse in the hope that it would be a different horse. When a horse has been trying in vain for 10 years to track down a 20-metre circuit, it is quite unlikely that you will be able to take it to its "real" Grand Prix potentials.
When you want to become a better horse and you want to race at higher level, when you get there, buy a better horse. This means there is too much hope (and Frank Sinatra). Making sure you like the horse. Can' t tell you how many occasions I have seen customers who have been hurt, bloodstained or otherwise hurt because their new horse has turned out to be a bug.
Considering that many of our ponies live until the 1930s, you should consider that you could live with your buy for a few years or more. Except you like to be dared, and you have a weakness for taming animals: a beautiful horse that you like.
Wish I had the cash to become an artist. But I was taught that if you want to gather works of fine arts, you should buy something because you like it, not because you think you want to make it. If you don't make a penny on a piece of work, you can at least put it up in your sitting-room.
This is how a horse is. Every kind of person buys a horse in the hope of making a win. You think (or were told) that you buy the horse, take it to its full capacity and end up with a pan of bullion. There' s just too much insecurity when it comes to the horse.
They are injured, they stop enjoy what they do, they get ill or they do not achieve their magic power for various causes. And sometimes it even works, and that's the same why folks keep purchasing raffle tickets. It' s the same thing. When you can buy into losing and you like to gamble, you should start playing the board first.
Remember to buy a horse as if you were paying for a holiday. You' re never gonna see that cash again. Irrespective of how much you pay, how many x-rays you take, what you do with ultrasounds, how many bleeding checks you perform, you can only say how the horse you are looking at is working on that particular date and only on that particular one.
In the 1990s I did a trial on shingles and another on inflexion testing and even proved it. You like that horse the way he is and who he is, you make the jump. It would be a pity if you didn't buy your next best buddy because of a issue you thought he might have just to see someone else spending a great amount of quality fucking with them.
Know what you are buying in advance and why. Don't be persuaded to pay for testing and exams that don't provide you with useful information. Consumers routinely pay several thousand bucks to pre-purchase costly horse testing and look for "problems". "The fact is, however, that there is no test that can tell how a horse will perform on the street.
That' s right: no x-ray can tell you if a wrist becomes arhritic, no sonography can tell you if a sinew bows, and no conformational analyses can tell you if a horse can successfully leap for years. Perhaps you are considering reselling and want to show what the horse was like when you purchased it (NOTE: Please go to #4 immediately at this point).
You may be looking for a lever to lower the sale prices. It' going to spare you a lot of inconvenience. I am surprised that they make a big buy (like a horse) and do not insist on some kind of business openness. Approximately 35 years ago, I recall datum active a Thoroughbred juvenile foal that oversubscribed for $1. 5 large integer bill.
It was a lot of cash to buy a horse (damn, it still is, but you know what I mean). And as it turns out, the horse's owner got $700,000. When someone represents you in the sale of the horse, make sure you receive a written contract of sale that will be initialled by the purchaser, the vendor and all participating agent.
Here is a list of some of the different types of horse-selling. $25,000 to actually price you. Someone find a horse. Horseback that horse. In any case, you should ask a vet to look at the horse before you buy it; see my pre-purchase testing item. When the horse you see doesn't work, don't be afraid, there's another one after him.
Regardless of the event, they call each year a "horse of the year".
