Description

Jeremiah John is a 2014 handsome gelding. He has a great build and an eye-catching stripe on his beautiful face. He is in the middle of rehab from a tendon injury that occurred in the Fall of 2018. His tendon continues to look good and he has fully transitioned into a turn-out routine with a buddy in an acre field. He’s been a perfect turn-out mate. He stands well for grooming and the farrier. He is currently wearing front shoes. He enjoys attention and is a real sweetheart. Jeremiah has a gentle yet playful demeanor. We recently took a quick video of him trotting in hand and playing in the snow. He has a ground covering step. Jeremiah is looking for an approved adopter who is familiar with bringing a horse back into work from a tendon rehab. We feel he has a great prognosis and will be suitable for most lower level disciplines. He’s sure to catch the judge’s eye in the Hunter ring! 

Jeremiah John came to our program through Beyond The Wire, we are thankful for their support.

 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.
