Bee Stingz is a lovely in-your-pocket-type horse with a wonderful, kind personality. She is a joy to have in the barn!
“Bee” is an easy keeper, requires no maintenance, and is easy to handle on the ground and under saddle. She has butter-smooth gaits and she’s easily adjustable with light rider aids.
She is quiet and has a good work ethic. She’s happy to work in the arena or hack out around the farm, and she steps over poles in nice balance. She is attentive and soft off the aids as she settles in to a beautiful, hunter style movement. She’s even been ridden in lessons by a 15-year-old young rider! She is turned out with a small group of mares and falls near the top/middle of the pack. She’s easy to catch and loves falling asleep in the cross ties while getting ready to work.
Bee is unraced and has fully rehabbed from a minor tenon injury. She is suitable for flat work and small jumping efforts with an intermediate rider.
Bee Stingz came to our program through NYTHA TAKE2 and, as always, we are thankful for their continued support!
ADOPTION FEE POLICY
New Vocations’ adoption fees are intentionally set lower than the cost of buying most Thoroughbreds or Standardbreds through a private seller. In today’s market, it’s not unusual for horses coming right off the track to be listed for sale at a price between $2,000 and $5,000. At New Vocations, we set a fee that will ultimately help each horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means we cannot take in an additional horse until one is adopted. Adopters should be encouraged to know that by adopting a horse through New Vocations, they are actually helping two horses transition to careers outside of racing.
Additionally, adopters get great value for their money: The majority of the horses have been in the program for a minimum of 60 days. During that time, horses are rehabilitated (if needed), socialized with other horses, fully evaluated, and in work with a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses each horse’s history and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.
While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that costs associated with ongoing care and additional training for each horse after adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront, he or she will have more funds available to cover the continuing costs of properly caring for a horse.
