Description

“That’s a Thoroughbred?” Get used to that question if you’re going to ride Pebbles Cove! This big, nicely put together mare looks and rides like a warmblood. She has only 1 start at the track and retired with no limitations, she’s RRP eligible and ready to go! Pebbles has taken easily to “trail riding” through the neighborhood around the barn and goes in the lead confidently. She is also happy to work in the arena and will make a cute dressage horse! She is more of a push ride and has steady comfortable gaits. She steps over trot poles in balance and is already stretching toward contact with the bit. She has been introduced to small jumps.

Pebbles is quiet in the barn and has no vices. She has a friendly demeanor and gets along well with other mares. She looks to bond with both people and horses, and is a willing partner in all that’s asked of her. Her floppy ears and intelligent eyes are endearing and beg for pets! Her birthday is coming up on April 9, will you celebrate by giving her a new home?!

Pebbles Cove came to our program through NYTHA’s TAKE THE LEAD program, 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, 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.
