Finance Reform, aka “Phoebe”, has been enjoying some R&R and is ready for approved adopters! She is going to be a mare of a lifetime with the athleticism to match!
As a special opportunity for qualified approved adopters, Finance Reform is available for adoption ahead of the normal schedule. Ideal qualified adopters would be experienced with at least basic rehab protocols, have a good working relationship with their equine vet (so rehabilitation plans and checkups are kept up-to-date), and would be comfortable re-starting Finance Reform under saddle once she’s ready to start back into training.
Please note that since we have not worked her under saddle yet, we cannot make any certifications as to her personality under tack.
Adoption fee will increase when she starts in under saddle work.
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, 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.
