New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program 

Six New Thoroughbred Ambassadors Selected for 2015!

New Vocations is proud to announce the six new Thoroughbred Ambassadors that have been selected to represent the program and promote retired racehorses in second careers. They will be joining our wonderful group of 17 Thoroughbred and Standardbred Ambassadors, who have been and will continue to help market our program at a grass roots level as well as share their own adoption experience to the general public through social media and our website.

This new group of Ambassadors will feature both New Vocations Thoroughbred Graduates who have just begun their second career training to horses that were adopted up to 10 years ago from the program and are already well established in their second careers.

15 year old Thoroughbred mare "Kays Way" was adopted from New Vocations by Amy Walbert in 2005 after 25 starts at the track. The newly appointed ambassadors have been competing in eventing
ever since and as Amy points out, " Kay is a testament to her breed, as well as a testament to retired and re-careered racing Thoroughbreds." Six year old Graded Stakes Winner "Discreet Dancer", on the other hand, was adopted by Caitlin Pennington in November, 2014 after 8 starts and $365,900 in earnings at the track. The gelding and his new adopter are already hard at work training him for a second career in hunter/jumpers with the hopes of attending their first horse shows later this year.

The New Vocations Ambassador Program is offered to active equestrians who have adopted a Thoroughbred or Standardbred from New Vocations and wish to assist the organization in promoting ex-racehorses for careers beyond the track. The goal is to educate the equestrian community about the athleticism, heart, and versatility of retired racehorses. Ambassadors are responsible for promoting New Vocations at various events and shows throughout the year by handing out program literature, displaying banners, and wearing New Vocations apparel. Ambassadors will also be responsible for providing blog entries, quality photos, and fun video clips throughout the year which will be shared on the New Vocations website and social media pages. Their equine partners have an equally important mission to represent retired racehorses as top athletes capable of successfully competing in a wide array of disciplines from eventing and dressage to foxhunting and polo.
