New Vocations

Blues Creek Equine Center is proud to be the newest Ohio home to New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program. New Vocation's mission is standing in the gap for retired racehorses providing a safety-net through rehabilitation, education, & placement in qualified, caring homes

New Vocations was founded in 1992 to offer retiring racehorses a safe-haven, rehabilitation, and continued education through placement in experienced, caring homes. Most of the horses arriving at New Vocations are injured and thin, suffering the normal occupational hazards of racing. Without a useful skill to offer their previous option was often a one-way ticket to the local livestock auction. New Vocations provides a safety net for these horses matching them with qualified individuals and following up on their rehabilitation and vocational training to ensure a successful transition. Additionally, the Program acts as an outreach to disadvantaged youth challenging them through the equine experience and motivational teachings to set worthy goals.
