Are you looking for a young, big, flashy gelding? Don’t be fooled by his name, Tariff Tantrum is and easy going guy that is looking for his next partner. Terry is an incredibly talented 3 year old and could truly excel in any discipline. Terry is a push ride and now has 3 well balanced gaits. He is currently working on moving from his hind end and reaching more through his shoulders. His uphill, sporty build screams dressage or eventing. After 4 starts Terry retired from racing with no known injuries. He continues to impress us with his quiet demeanor and work ethic. Although he’s quiet, Terry is very brave and works well alone or in a group. Terry is currently turned out with 2 other playful young geldings and gets along super with them.
On the ground, Terry has great ground manners. He stands well on cross-ties and enjoys a good grooming session but still does need some work on standing for the farrier.
Terry easily catches your eye as you walk through the barn. Whether it’s his large stature, his kind eye, or his fluffy forelock, everyone stops to give him some extra attention which he eats up!
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.
