You should have in writing that the horse is for children though.
Vet exams help, sellers who are drugging will usually fight you on vet exams.
They will tell you you're just wasting your money, and may even drop the price if you "Buy today with no vet exam".
A horse that is supposed to be for children shouldn't be purchased without a vet exam and/or a buyer or buyer's agent who knows how to evaluate a pony for children.
We once sold a hot filly for serious ranch work and gaming and they came back at us saying their grandkids couldn't handle her. We showed them in the sales contract where it said this was a "very forward horse for an experienced adult rider"!
We took her back anyway and used her for the next 25 years, what a great mare she was.
YES, you should be clear what you are buying and YES you should get everything in writing.
YES you should try to buy through personal referrals and YES in a perfect world you'd be able to do all these things.
Going back without letting someone know you are coming is great if you're not locked out or bitten by their dogs.
