Offlee Pretty quite lives up to her name and is a lovely, willing partner! OP has been around the block having been originally adopted in 2012, her previous owner showed her the ropes of schooling hunter/jumper shows (2’6″ courses), trail riding in western tack, natural horsemanship, and even becoming a mom. She is available now through no fault of her own and is ready and willing to create a bond with her new partner. OP is show ring ready and will lay down an “offlee” nice dressage test for you!
She is quiet and easy to get along with, has no vices and no limiting injuries. OP definitely has the mark of being someone’s special horse, she is open hearted and loving and looks for “her person”. She is turned out with a small group of cooperative mares and fits in just fine without drama.
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, a fee is set for each horse that will ultimately help the horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means the program 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 worked with by a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses the history of each horse and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.
While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that the costs associated with the ongoing care and additional training for each horse post-adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront that he or she will have more funds available to cover the ongoing costs of properly caring for a horse.
