If you are looking for a young flashy hunter prospect look no further! Don’t let this guy’s size deter you … he has a BIG personality and is a fun ride! 

Last raced in June (it was clear after six starts that racing wasn’t his game!), “Bobby” recently began his second career training and is already a fun ride. He is an eager learner and loves to work! With a solid work ethic, Bobby continues to show that he’s the man under saddle as he works on balance and relaxation. 

Not much bothers him under saddle, although he needs an experienced handler on the ground.

Bobby retired sound with no known injuries. The sky’s the limit for this cool guy!



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.
