Are you looking for a laugh?!?! Quiet Ry is absolutely lovely! In the barn he is like a big kid constantly wanting to play and be the class clown! Under saddle, Ry is currently working on building strength in his hind end with a lot of walk, trot transitions and walking the hills on the property. He is an in your pocket type guy with a warmblood body! Ry loves to be outside; in the paddock, pasture, or riding around the property! He likes to work but sometimes has a baby moment when asking to do something different! He responds with stubbornness until he understands what you are asking! Once he does, he is a go with the flow type guy! After some more training, this guy will be able to tote around a young intermediate! Currently best suited for advanced rider or intermediate working with a professional trainer with flatwork only! He should be able to do low level jumping once his body has blossomed!
Gets along well with others – stands in crossties – stands for farrier – loves to be outside
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.
