Repetitious is the dark bay version of his daddy, Giant’s Causeway: tall, lanky, and built like a runner.
“Petey” is working on properly using himself, but a novice or intermediate rider will compliment him nicely. Petey is willing and forward under saddle, he has a wonderful work ethic, and is all business when he is being ridden. There is no spook or funny business.
Petey goes out with another gelding and is easy to handle in and around the barn. We can see Petey doing Dressage or being a reliable trail horse.
Recently, Petey participated in our farm schooling show, where he received a 5th place in the All Thoroughbred Walk Trot Pleasure class. The spectators busy arena and noise never phased this guy!
Petey loves to trail ride! Looking for your next partner? This is your guy. He’s very relaxed and will lead or follow.
Petey is 2020 Retrained & Remarkable Challenge eligible. As such he will be invited to vie for $5,000 in cash and prizes at the 2020 New Vocations All-Thoroughbred Charity Horse Show at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, where he will receive a free stall and free entry into R&R Challenge classes (which include English and Western pleasure, hunter hack, trail, driving and in-hand classes).
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, we set a fee that will ultimately help each horse find a home quickly. The program’s facilities are always at full capacity, which means we 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 in work with a professional trainer. New Vocations fully discloses each horse’s history and provides all available medical records, many of which include X-ray and ultrasounds.
While adoption fees are low, it should be noted that costs associated with ongoing care and additional training for each horse after adoption can be high. New Vocations hopes that by helping an adopter save money upfront, he or she will have more funds available to cover the continuing costs of properly caring for a horse.
