Description

City (aka as Hillbilly) is an in your pocket type guy. He wants treats every minute and has that sweet face to make you give it to him!  What city has in heart he lacks a bit in the ability department.  City will do best in a non jumping home (he hates it!!) with someone who wants to trail ride and stick with flat work only! He loves to take a joke and to give you one back! He is a good bodied guy who wants to please but only if its not too much work. Great brain for a younger rider to work with a trainer. He does have a large canter stride so someone with a good seat will help him immensely and help him balance. He leads on trail, takes it all in stride, and lets his rider enjoy the ride. He may need a slight squeeze for support during uneven terrain as he is still 6!  He must have as much turnout as he can as he gets a bit grumpy without it. He has come a long way from where he was with nothing but time, love, and turnout!

Please know that City is currently on equioxx once a day and does much better. Please consider our City boy/Hillbilly as your next partner. He will not disappoint in the personality department!

Beyond City Limits is Retrained & Remarkable Challenge eligible. As such he will receive a shipping credit of up to $500, and an invitation to compete in Challenge-specific classes at the 2019 New Vocations Charity Horse Show Series. R&R adopters who choose to participate in the competition will be eligible to compete for $5,000 in cash and prizes; they will also receive a FREE stall at the Charity Horse Show and FREE entry into Challenge 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, 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.
