Description

Who’s that girl?!
 
Mary is the pretty girl at the bar, the life of the party, the girl everyone wants to know! Built like Dolly Parton, this 4 year old Filly raced slowly 7 times and is more than ready for a new sport. Polite and clever, Mary is easy to be around and stands well for the Farrier and in cross ties. She has extensive groundwork training, lunges and is very easy to ride at the walk, trot and canter and loves a good trail ride. She is brave and very eager to please. Mary enjoys any and all new challenges and has begun work over poles and little cross rails. Athletic and fun, TenCentMartiniMary is well-suited to any discipline; she does sport an old, set bow, and she is cleared for all equine endeavors.
 

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.
