WHY SHE IS A NEW VOCATIONS AMBASSADOR
I am interested in becoming a New Vocations ambassador because I just absolutely LOVE thoroughbreds. The only horses I’ve ever owned have been thoroughbreds and I can’t imagine learning more about tactful and empathic horsemanship from a different breed. I have really learned to listen to the horse and trust the feedback the horse is giving me and it’s really improved my riding in the last few years. I LOVE how dedicated New Vocations is to the welfare of their horses and appreciate how they make an effort to place their horses in the perfect home.
If I could pick a career without regard to income or living expenses, it would be retraining OTTBs for new careers and finding them good homes. Since that is not feasible for me, I feel that being a New Vocations ambassador could be a different way that I could make a difference in the lives of retired racehorses.
As a New Vocations Ambassador, Laura will be sharing her experiences as well as photos and video from all the shows she and Sam P will be attending. Follow their progress by clicking the links below!
