Description

Diesis Storm is a standout with her unique and lovely bay roan coloring! Unfortunately it is hard to capture in photos except maybe in the winter when she is darker but it stands out when you see her in person. She can be opinionated as to how she would like to be groomed but she always gives in to how good it feels. She stands well and just makes expressive faces.In the field, she likes to think she’s the leader of her group but she’s really probably number two. Diesis can usually be convinced to join in to games by one of the younger fillies and enjoys a good romp around the field. She is happiest with at least full day turnout and does not do well with limited turnout. She does not have any stable vices.

Under saddle, Diesis is a good feeling filly who loves her job. She has a soft mouth with lovely upward and downward transitions. She stretches and frames well. She goes best for riders with soft hands and a soft seat as she can make herself tense. She bends well both directions with leg yields at the walk and trot. She has a really good grasp of basic lateral movement. Diesis is not spooky, she is a forward ride who prefers a consistent program. She would be best with an advanced rider or an intermediate rider working with a trainer who prefers a good motor. She is suitable for pleasure and low level jumping careers.

Diesis does have xrays available to approved adopters. 

Diesis 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.
