Description

Atlantis Secret is such a blast to have in the barn! He’s got this energetic, quirky personality that’s almost contagious—you can’t help but feel a little bit happier around him.  Don’t let his age fool you, he doesn’t look or act 15!  And, he certainly doesn’t have any plans of retiring any time soon!

Atlantis Secret enjoys turnout time, gets along very well with other geldings and has no bad habits. He’s got tremendous stable manners as you’d expected from a horse that’s been professionally trained and handled for 13 years. 

We’re looking for an extra special home for this amazing horse. He prefers to trot under saddle and is suitable for almost anything.  Approved adopters can contact jennifer@horseadoption.com

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.
