Item description for Be a Smart Horse Buyer: A Guide to Avoiding Common Mistakes and Finding the Right Horse for You by Sue M Copeland Bob Avila...
Buying a horse can be fun, exciting-and frustrating, but this new book from Bob Avila can help make the process easier and more enjoyable. In Be a Smart Horse Buyer, Bob Avila, trainer of over 35 world champion or reserve world champions, will walk you through the horse purchase process. You will start by making a checklist of what you want in a horse, and see if it matches what you really need. Bob will tell you the pros and pitfalls of buying off the net, and tell you what you can and can not learn from a sale video. You will learn the vices you can live with, and the seven signs that you should walk away. You will also get great advice on how to choose a horse for your child. And top performance horse veterinarian Kurt Heite, DVM, will take you through the pre-purchase exam and explain what vetting can tell you about your prospect. Whether you are buying your first horse or your new horse, this book is an invaluable resource to assist you in buying the best horse for you. Color Photos and illustrations throughout, with cartons by Jim Paul.

Great! May 13, 2008
This book is great! It's very informative and covers all bases when deciding to purchase a horse; you'll know just what to look for.
Very useful for a new buyer... Apr 30, 2008
This book is great for a new buyer...and is a good refresher for experienced horsemen. It's laid out in a clear and conscise way and helps the reader focus on getting the horse that's most appropriate for their riding abilities. Despite it's Western photos, the content is appropriate for any and all riding disciplines.
I also recommend Ride the Right Horse by Yvonne Barteau. That book focuses more on horse personalities and getting the right match of horse and rider.
