AAEP Focus on Sport Horse Pre-Purchase Exam

From the ABCs of a successful examination to effectively communicating your findings to both the client and the other parties involved, Focus on Sport Horse Pre-Purchase Exam sets you up for success when performing this important service.

The complete program and list of instructors will be posted in January. 


Focus Format:

The event will use a “flipped classroom” model in which attendees complete relevant instructional material at home prior to the event, so that in-person time is devoted to experiential learning through skills application and analysis. 

Beginning April 1, registrants will be provided digital resources through an online Learning Management System in the form of instructional videos on the subject matter of the wet labs. Registrants will complete pre-meeting quizzes to ensure understanding and to qualify for CE credits.

Each registrant will participate in six labs May 2 – 3 in Lexington:
