23 Oct Meet the October Adoptable Horse of the Month
Welcome to our newest feature, Horse Country’s Adoptable Horse of the Month! Each month we will highlight an adoptable horse from one of our non-profit members, so make sure to tune in to find your perfect fit right here in Horse Country.
Let’s get to know Cover Me Up, an adoptable Thoroughbred at New Vocations in Lexington, Kentucky!
Cover Me Up, whose barn name is ‘Player’, is a 2019 Thoroughbred gelding best suited for an intermediate/advanced rider, as he is working hard to develop better balance and self-carriage. While he may still have youngster moments, Player has a sweet soul and is polite when being led or in the crossties.
Despite worrying people at the farm, Player’s favorite activity is playing flat in the field. He also enjoys spending time with his pasture buddy. He has healed from a previous soft tissue injury and is excited to excel in a new low to mid-level career! The gelding is eligible for the 2024 Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover.
If you’re not currently in the position to adopt a horse, you can still learn about the mission and work of the Kentucky Equine Adoption Center – and meet some of their residents – on a tour of the facility. Tours are offered through October on Fridays and Saturdays at 1:30pm.
His adoption fee is on sale for $2,000. If you are interested, make sure to check out the New Vocations website for more information on how to inquire about adopting!
