Adena’s Chance, aka “Chance” is a 16.1 hh Bay gelding. He is available in Marysville, OH for $500.
Mobo is a 16 hand, bay, gelding and is available for $500 in Marysville, OH. This quiet, unassuming guy holds a great secret of how good he was on the track in just 2 short years of racing. From a rough first start, to winning 3 of his races by 6 ½, 10 and 12 lengths, he was often the pace setter and always showed good speed. The fact that he was the odds on favorite in over half of his races shows Mobo was a favorite at the track just as he is a favorite with us at our facility. After all, he did sell for $125,000 as a yearling. Mobo is such a kind horse both to handle and to ride and is also a great babysitter for our more difficult boys. He quietly controls the pasture without kicking or pushing the others around and soon his pasture mates are calmly grazing nose to nose with him. Amazingly he had been off the track for 3 ½ years prior to coming to us and when he started back under saddle, he went right to work like he hadn’t missed any time away because he has such a sharp mind. As you can see in the video, Mobo will follow you anywhere being the people-pleaser he is and is game for anything, but prefers to be left alone and not micromanaged while being ridden. He says he knows his job! Very easy to handle on the ground, respectful, and loves attention which makes him fun to be around and will make someone a great pleasure horse
Bohemian Rhapsody has proved to be doing quite well with his new family. They are proud to announce that, “We are training for an upcoming dressage clinic with Eke Potucek-Puscha who has trained with the previous school master of the Spanish Riding School. All of our work and patience has paid off as Bo has developed into a fabulous boy and his dressage gaits are to die for.
Susie is a 16 hand, dark bay mare in Hummelstown, PA. She is ready to be adopted for $550.
Wise Harmony is 2007, 16.1 1/2 hand, chestnut mare. She is ready for adoption for $400 in Marysville, OH. So racing might not have been her thing, but Harmony has enough talent and heart for a different discipline. At first glance at her in her stall she doesn’t get your attention, but as soon as she is under saddle she is much more impressive. She is a bigger bodied mare with a good brain and sweet disposition. She also has a good work ethic once she gets past her nervousness of having a new job because she is a sensitive mare and wants to do well. She has come a long way in a short period of time and if her rider is soft, patient and quiet with her, the payoff is big. She will soften, round up, and work in a nice frame with good rhythm and balance. Stephanie Moon Photo Harmony gets along well with the other mare in turn out and she enjoys her time outside. She is respectful to handle, likes attention and has no vices. Harmony will be suitable for as a Dressage or pleasure horse and may be able to hop over an occasional fence
Tall, Handsome Gelding w/ a Big Personality! Humor is a 16.2h, chestnut gelding and ready for adoption in Marysville, OH! photo credit Stephanie Moon Humor is the class clown of the barn and he has a big personality so he will do anything for attention from swinging his ball around on the front of his stall to his own form of dance at his stall gate when trying to communicate his wishes to anyone who will listen. He is always entertaining and loves an audience. There is rarely a time when he doesn’t have his head over the stall gate watching everything that goes on around him because life is very interesting in the barn. Even outside he has a very active mind and will check out anything that interests him as he plays in his paddock with his turn out buddy. When it is time to work though, he knows how to take his job seriously and he seems to enjoy working. Humor is definitely athletic and has good natural balance, which he comes by honestly through good breeding. Right now he will be suitable for flatwork and may possibly be able to do some jumping in the future. Humor sold for $25,000 as a yearling and for $150,000 as a 2 year old which is not surprising considering who his sire is. Humor’s sire, Sharp Humor, was a Graded Stakes winner coming in second in the million dollar Florida Derby to Barbaro and is now the second leading sire in North America. His sire’s sire, Distorted Humor, was a Multiple Graded Stakes winner and his off spring have earned over $95 million

Proceeds benefited New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program and Retired Racehorse Training Project Lexington, KY- Friday night’s Thoroughbreds For All nearly doubled in size from last year’s event with over 500 attending from 28 states while raising over $12,000 for two worthy aftercare charities. The majority of the audience was made up of equestrians in town for the Rolex Three Day Event who wanted to learn more about retired Thoroughbred racehorses. The racing industry was well represented as the event was sponsored by AmWest Entertainment, Gulfstream After Care, and Three Chimneys Farm. The beneficiaries, New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program and the Retired Racehorse Training Program, partnered to host the educational event at the New Vocations Lexington facility. The evening consisted of dinner followed by a special presentation from The Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program to recognize each of the 2013 Rolex riders competing on registered Thoroughbreds with a gift. Each Rolex rider shared their thoughts and most their preference for using retired racehorses for eventing. “The Thoroughbred Incentive Program recognizes and rewards the versatility of the Thoroughbred through sponsorship of Thoroughbred classes and awards at horse shows and events across the United States and Canada,” said Kristin Leshney , legal associate for The Jockey Club “The Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event is the epitome of equine athleticism, and it was an honor to be able to recognize so many Thoroughbreds competing at this level.” The remainder of the evening consisted of four sessions focused on how to choose and work with newly retired racehorses.
