New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program will host an Open Barn and BBQ Apr. 28 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. at its Lexington facility at Mereworth Farm.
This year's event–held concurrently with the Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event, taking place at the nearby Kentucky Horse Park–will feature educational seminars, a MasterClass presented by the Retired Racehorse Project, “Introductory Jumping Exercises for OTTBs,” and a chance to meet adoptable horses while touring the facility.
“We look forward to welcoming guests to New Vocations at Mereworth Farm,” said Anna Ford, New Vocations' Thoroughbred Program Director. “Our Open Barn & BBQ is the perfect event for us to showcase our adoptable horses, host inspiring demos and spread the word about these amazing equine athletes.”
Tickets are still available and can be purchased ($30 for adults, $10 for children 12 and under) at https://newvocations.wedoauctions.com. Proceeds from the event will benefit New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization.
