O.P. Magna Fi’d, aka “Mags”, is a horse looking for his person! He attaches himself easily to the person that spends the most time with him! He was bred by his owner and has been very loved since birth! They still have his mom onsite at their barn! Mags loves the long rein and slow trot. He likes to be left alone in the mouth but will go wherever you want! Goes over poles without hesitation, will follow you in the arena like a puppy dog just looking for attention! He does toe out on both fronts and did have a chip removed in his left knee in March, 2017. He will make a great trail horse or western dressage horse! He is suitable for an intermediate rider working with a professional trainer!
Good in turnout with others – Loves to roll – Easy keeper – Stands in crossties – Stands for farrier

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.
