What is Required to Book a Vetting?
Vettings (Pre-Purchase Examinations) can often be further afield on yards we aren't familiar with so certain information is required for the process to run smoothly.
- Horse - Horse’s name, date of birth, colour, sex and breed/type. What the horse’s job is supposed to be and any particular concerns the buyer has about the horse. The purchase price of the horse should also be supplied; to determine whether the horse may require additional examination, such as radiographs, for insurance purposes. The horse’s passport should be present for the vetting.
- Buyer - Full name and address, and whether or not you wish to be present for the vetting. We require a mobile, home and work telephone numbers.
- Seller - Who is selling the horse, and whether we are seeing the current owner of the horse or an agent selling on behalf of an owner. We need the address the horse is at and the owner’s home address, as well as all the previously mentioned phone numbers.
- Directions - Really helpful when vettings are further afield.
