Creative solutions are the name of the game right now, as many of us responsibly abide by stay-at-home orders. We can’t do a lot of the things we’d like to do such as go out to dinner with friends, hit the mall or even go horse shopping. But, as we’re all discovering, all of these things are all still possible thanks to the wide world of technology that we have available to us today! And yes, even horse shopping is still possible!
New Vocation Racehorse Adoption is ready and willing to utilize FaceTime, Facebook Chat, Zoom, etc. to chat with potential adopters. They also recently slashed the adoption fees for many of the horses that they currently have, hoping to make some room to welcome more horses into their program as the COVID-19 situation continues.
Look at this handsome five-year-old! Nicknamed “Chad,” this good-looking gelding seems to be the total package in a plain bay wrapper. Chad will still need a little time to wind down and rest after his time on the track, where he made 10 career starts, but looks like a promising athlete ready to tackle whatever you put in front of him after he’s had a little let down. Chad has excellent ground manners and has been started with basic lunging and groundwork. He appears to be a clever horse with a zest for learning.

Here’s a real blank slate for you — so much so, this gelding doesn’t even have a Jockey Club registered name. He’s been dubbed “America” by the staff at New Vocations and has quickly become a barn favorite thanks to his easy-going personality. He seems to be a steady mount under saddle so far and seems like a really fun young one to bring along.

There’s a lot to love about Infatuation. This 15.2-hand girl is going to be the perfect pocket rocket type. “Maggie” has shown the New Vocations staff that she’s a forward ride with more ‘go’ than ‘whoa’ and she’s ready to blaze her way into a new career since coming off the track after eight career starts. She’s a sweet mare who gets along with others and loves having a job as well. Sounds like a perfect combination, really!
