Try before you buy

I was listening to You & Yours on Radio 4 at lunchtime, as we usually do, just because it's on and today they had an item about people having problems with buying horses that weren't delivered as promised or turned out to be older than advertised. But who on earth buys a horse unseen??? I kept horses for over 20 years and would never have dreamed of buying one without taking a more expert friend with me, seeing it in the flesh, seeing it handled and ridden and trying it for myself. I would never have just relied on a video on the web (assuming such things had existed back then).

Some people do ask for trouble.
