Queen Of Creed is lovely, fun-loving and smart with beautiful flowing movement and a bright future as a performance horse. She is inquisitive and sweet and has a very friendly demeanor. Queen always shoots her head over the stall door looking for attention at the first sign of people entering the barn, and heads to the fence line anytime someone walks by. No stranger to friends, she also gets along easily in her turnout group of mares.
Queen seems destined to dazzle in the show ring, but has no idea how pretty she is! Being a baby horse is tough, and as such, baby horses sometimes need to be encouraged to go to work! She can be a bit of a kick ride with rambunctious tendencies at times, and always tries whatever is asked of her. She steps over trot poles in perfect balance and has a fluid rocking horse type canter. She retired sound with no limitations and is a great learner. We hope to see her in the hunter or dressage ring!
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.
