Description

Fiesta Oasis is small but mighty! He tends to be the leader of his turnout group He just likes to tell everyone he is a big horse but is not mean to his friends. Much like his name suggests (fiesta= party), Fiesta does enjoy a good romp around the field with his buddies. He is a cuddly guy and loves forehead scratches. He does not have any stall vices. 

Under saddle, he is a quick learner. He goes around happily in a rubber bit and travels lightly in our hand. Fiesta enjoys new challenges and seems like the type of guy who will enjoy an all around career, variety would be the spice of his life! Though he’s not as tall as some, he does take up a good amount of leg and even our tallest rider (5’8″) does not feel out of place on him! 

He retired without any known injuries and should be suitable for all disciplines with an intermediate rider! We could definitely see him being the mount of a spunk, go-getter kid who wants to tackle the show rings and just have a great, adventurous, all-around mount and buddy!

 

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.
