Today’s honoree: calendar sale to benefit New Vocations.
In need of a Christmas gift for a horse lover in your life? Want to get ahead for 2018 AND benefit a great charity?
Photography Tracey Buyce (a Horse Nation regular: see some of our past pieces about her work here, here and here) has created a beautiful equine fine art calendar for 2018 with 100% of the proceeds to benefit New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program. With luxurious paper quality and dimensions of 12″ by 18″, this calendar is more art than organization tool — and with your purchase benefiting off-track Thoroughbreds in need of a home, how can you go wrong?
New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is the largest racehorse adoption program in the United States, helping to rehome off-the-track Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds to forever homes where they can begin their second careers.
New Vocations’ mission statement is as follows:
To stand in the gap for noncompetitive, often injured racehorses providing a peaceful environment and skilled hands to assist in their development as pleasure mounts. To place these horses in experienced loving homes that will continue their education so each has a skill and therefore, a future.
To date, New Vocations has adopted out over 6,000 horses out of locations in Ohio and Pennsylvania, with an ongoing capital campaign to develop a farm in Kentucky to serve both as adoption center and aftercare showcase to the public. New Vocations also leads the way in education about the off-track horse with program director Anna Ford authoring a guide on retraining the OTTB.
Today is the last day to order a calendar to guarantee Christmas delivery, so head over to Tracey Buyce’s photography website to order yours today! Calendars are $45 — and remember that 100% of proceeds go to New Vocations.
