Description

No question this filly is “Stunning”!  With a naturally muscular build and quiet nature this girl would be best suited for as a pleasure horse.  With her build she would be Stunning under western tack.  Stunning is easy to have in and around the barn.  She ties as well as cross ties well.  Stunning has lovely level movement under saddle.  She’s an easy going girl to turn out in a small group of like minded mares.  She’s not aggressive with other horses but isn’t a push over either.  Her inquisitive nature makes her an ideal trail horse as she is not afraid of new things and experiences.  So take a Shot on Stunning Shot!

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.
