“Jaynee” is a big-bodied mare with a huge step and great movement! She tracks up like a show-y horse already, and has the presence to turn heads. Even though she was a pacer, trotting comes naturally to her. She is a pleasure on the ground and is very respectful of anyone handling her. She also ties without issue and is polite for the farrier/ vet. Jaynee is a fan of small children, small animals and is just generally kind to a passerby. In turnout though, she is dominant, and would be happiest going out in a smaller group. 
Even though Jaynee is relatively new to having a rider on her back, she is developing nicely under saddle and when she relaxes, shows a great deal of potential. Janie needs a confident and quiet rider to continue her growth and develop her into her full potential. While a pleasure/ trail lifestyle would suit her well, she is also fancy enough to clean up at Standardbred shows.


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.
