Every horse offered at the Fall Classic Breeders’ Sale has successfully completed an insurance equivalent physical examination, including musculoskeletal, eye, respiratory, and heart. In addition, each horse has been presented to the Inspection Committee in hand, and has been evaluated for health, basic soundness, and turnout. The documented results of these examinations are on file in the sale office and available for viewing. Consigned horses have NOT completed a full pre-purchase exam.
Consignors have provided x-rays for all Prospects Under Saddle and Performance Horses age 3 and over. For all other horses x-rays are optional. X-rays are available online and may be viewed by a certified veterinarian. The sale veterinarian from Alberta Veterinary Center will be available on Saturday and Sunday for x-ray consultations and will be providing this as a pro bono service to the sale. Buyers are advised to make their appointments early as the schedule does fill. Request veterinarian access to view horse x-rays.
Prospective buyers are welcome to have the veterinarian of their choice perform flexion tests or pre-purchase examinations on horses of interest. Any services beyond x-ray consultations that are provided by the sale veterinarian are at the expense of the prospective buyer. Pre-purchase examinations or flexion tests must be discussed and arranged with the consignor.
