Be a Smart Horse Buyer Bob Avila
Bob Avila guides you through the process of buying a horse with good advice on how to avoid the common mistakes and how to find just the right horse for you.

A super guide for anyone buying the horse. It begins logically with ten tips to launch your search and help locating a pro or agent if you feel you need one. Then the pros and cons of buying off the net are thoroughly addressed, and how to make sure you find a horse that suits you. Advice on shipping for your kids horse, which is a world unto itself with kids emotions involved.

How do you evaluate a DVD? What is the best way of buying at a sale? What questions should you ask the seller? How do you take a smart buyer test ride? What signs should make you walk away? What are prepurchase exams and how you should evaluate the results? How are you going to clinch the deal? How can you evaluate a young prospect when you can't ride him? What does a horse's eye tell you? How do you search for a performance horse the smart way? These are just a few of the questions answered. review: some great humor here and certainly as the author admits, learned from hard experience. Great thing here though is now professional rodeo rider and trainer/sales agent and AQHA horseman of the year Bob Avila has put it all neatly down in an easy to read book. Actually a bit of a page turner. Some truly good advice - whether you're starting out buying your first horse or consider you've made bad decisions in the past and could use some help - well worth reviewing. Excellent writing from Editor of Horse and Rider magazine Sue Copeland keeps it succinct and to the point. Good photography throughout. This book will almost certainly save you heartache and dollars. Recommended.
