Description

This 3-year-old Paddy O’Prado filly will stop you in your tracks and make your jaw drop because she’s nothing short of drop-dead gorgeous! Tillie’s Angel truly looks like an angel, with her beautiful uphill build and that incredible neck and shoulder. Tillie has three expressive gaits and shows SERIOUS ATHLETICISM. She is also a pleasure to work with on the ground, as she will stand quietly in cross ties and is well behaved for all her handlers. 
 
Raced lightly, Tillie has adjusted nicely to the slower pace of life off the track and hacks out well around the farm. She is currently walk, trot and cantering under saddle, and was recently started over small fences. This mare shows INCREDIBLE POTENTIAL as a sporthorse and will make an exceptional and athletic prospect for a lucky adopter. Tillie will need an experienced and patient rider, ideally a professional or a skilled amateur working with a trainer.

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.
