Description

This chestnut mare is ready to break all of the stereotypes with her new partner.  16 hands with the perfect amount of chrome, we know she will stand out in any discipline.  Terralsole will need someone with experience to bring her along although she is very willing and a quick learner.  Lightly raced with only 6 starts and her last race in September 2018, she retired sound, so this red head can go in any direction.  Although Terra is young and green, her natural carriage and balanced gate along with her daisy cutter movement screams hunter or dressage to us.  Terra would do best with an intermediate to advanced rider who can continue to develop her talent, confidently coach her and bring her along.  

 

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.
