Poppin Tags is an intelligent, energetic 6 year old gelding with no limitations.  He’s looking for an advanced rider that will show him a lot of affection and only positive reinforcement.  He’s an ultra sensitive horse that likes to be in a systematic program that’s built on a trusting partnership. With a higher than average propensity to canter in both directions, Tags is a horse that can be pointed toward dressage/jumping classes at the standardbred shows. 

He has no bad habits, easy to work around, gets along well with other horses.  This is a horse that will shut down if his rider makes mistakes, or handles him roughly– therefore we will only consider advanced horsemen for this sweet boy whose future is so very bright!



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.
