Kasey's Story...
Kasey is one of the Standardbreds that was rescued from slaughter from New Jersey. She's 20-years-old, and was a broodmare, and before that she raced as a trotter. She is sweet tempered and nicely mannered. She is being started under saddle and has been doing a wonderful job. She's been rode all over SHARE property and in the surrounding fields and she is a really good girl. She'll go through anything and doesn't do anything stupid or mean-spirited under saddle. She trots and canters easily and seems to enjoy riding around outside. She does get a little nervous in an arena but we think that's just showing her preference to be a laid back trail horse for someone.

Kasey's adoption fee is $500 and she's eligible for our Seniors for Seniors program--reduced adoption fee for people 55+ adopting horses who are 20+ years old or pasture pets.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kasey, a Dewey Standardbred was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Standardbred for sale in Dewey, or seeking a Standardbred from a breeder in Dewey.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Dewey already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Dewey breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Standardbred breeders who help with Standardbred rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Dewey paves the way for another one to be saved.
