When purchasing horses overseas, remember that most countries do not follow the AAEP minimum standards. Have all vet records sent to your veterinarian for evaluation. However, if budget permits, it is best to have your own vet do an on site evaluation prior to your purchase. Besides your vet’s involvement, insure that your lawyer reviews the sales agreement since purchases overseas are covered by their country’s laws which may not stand up to adjudication in a U.S. court.
