MARE LOVERS…..this mare is fantastic. Goes with the flow and has the movement to match!
Quinn loves to hang her head out the stall door and just snooze. She is a barn favorite! Stays quiet for turnout, riding, grooming etc! Sometimes she has an opinion about bathing but she soon realizes that its a good thing! Easy ride, easy keeper! She is going walk, trot, canter and has jumped small logs in the field! She has a great brain and way of going! All around a laid back, kind of lackadaisical, type of gal! Not you typical mare and also likes having a job. She can be a bit strong at the canter as she is still learning to use herself after some time off, but trots around the property like she has been doing it for years!
Best suited for an intermediate rider working directly with a trainer or a trainer to work with first! This girl has show potential just needs finished. Would do best with her person as she is so sweet and wants to please.
Suited for low level disciplines

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.
