He's not my cup of tea, but New Vocations does a wonderful job marketing and presenting their horses. I believe their presentation of horses helps people to see OTTBs as valuable prospects rather than the perception many have of them as "someone else's trash" so I really applaud their work! I similarly love CANTER retraining programs, LOPE in Tx, etc.

OH my, I would buy him today, if I hadn't said I would never buy any more horses. I did not watch the Video. He is stunning, My color My breed My size!
~Drool~ Okay I take it back, He looks to be stabbing the ground with his inside hind. Moving very short, I know race horses have an odd way up going at the trot sometimes, and he was last raced in MArch, but that looks awful and she can't really post to it well. Anyone?
I have never personally dealt with New Vocations, but I have been consistently impressed with how they present their horses (although the guy in the video DOES look very off behind). Additionally, their website and FB pages are professional and updated regularly and their adoption criteria and fees are very reasonable. They seem like a great organization and I recommend them frequently.
Don't fall for a girl who fell for a horse just to be number two in her world... ~EFO
You have to stop posting these I am getting ideas!
I like him a lot, the best of the bunch mover wise, He will really improve nicely with some dressage work. He already wants to be soft and her hands are not that quiet! Only 500 dollars? are all these that little?
Gorgeous horse (Strasbourg). With correct muscling and training, he'll be stunning. I wonder what's going on with his right hind. Hock problem? I hope it's nothing serious and that his new owner will take good care of him.
