 You better be ready to celebrate, because you have a reason to now that you found DANCE PARTY!!!

“DJ” (the MC of your dreams), is big, brave, sweet, and a stellar mover.

*drops the mic*



DJ is intermediate-friendly gentleman who would make the perfect dance partner for someone with low-level/ flat ambitions (he has an old meniscus injury which limits him to less advanced ‘dance moves’). He is stronger tracking left than right right now, but with the right partner, we’re sure he would find his balance quickly! Take a look at his movement though! You’re sure to get noticed with this fancy guy for a mount! Furthermore, DJ has been hacked all around our property and he is an amazing trail horse! This dance party can go anywhere!

While DJ is still young, he shows a lot of maturity, and patience. He enjoys attention and being handled by people, as well as his time in turnout with a buddy. He is not aggressive, he does not have stall vices, and he is a stand-out citizen in the barn.

Don’t miss out on this Dance Party!



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.
