Description

Onwindntide is lovely five year old mare that only raced 32 times. “Windy” raced on the pace, but has a very hunter like trot, that is flat and covers ground. She is so pretty to watch go around. She was super easy to transition under saddle. Windy is confident and goes where you ask her to go. There was a building project going on in the barn on video day and she paid no attention to drills, hammering and loud noises. This girl has the movement and ability to be a super endurance horse prospect very easily. She prefers to trot and with more training could be taught to canter. Being a riding horse has come very easily and naturally for Windy. She just loves it! Windy would look beautiful as a show horse, endurance, foxhunting, and or driving. She is very elegant in every way. 

Windy is excellent to work around and has very good ground manners. She stands perfectly in crossties, easy to trim and has great feet. This very nice mare is as sweet as can be and is ready to excel in her next endeavor. We can’t wait to see what she does! 

 

 

 

 

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.
