NEW VOCATIONS CAN HELP!
Founded in 1992, New Vocations has grown into the largest racehorse adoption program in the country. Our mission to rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome retired racehorses has led to the placement of over 5,000 individuals, with 450 retirees entering the program each year. With seven facilities in Kentucky, Ohio and Pennsylvania, New Vocations serves over 40 tracks working directly with owners and trainers in need of aftercare.
Please feel free to contact us anytime you have a horse in need of retirement. We rarely have a waiting list for horses that are sound and can enter right into our retraining program. We also have several farms that are able to rehabilitate horses retiring with injuries. Our program can take in any horse that has a good prognosis for being a riding sound. There is an average wait of two weeks for these horses.
6 year old Graded Stakes winner "Discreet Dancer" had eight starts at the track with earnings of $365,900 and last raced at Monmouth Park in June, 2013. He was donated to New Vocations after sustaining a tendon injury and was adopted shortly thereafter to begin his new career as a Hunter/Jumper.
