( OFFICER ROCKET (GB) - DEVONSPAINTEDLADY, BY DEVON DEPUTY )
Deputy Rocket is a new arrival to our facility and is currently on let down/down time. This 16 hand, 3 year old gelding has been lightly raced and unplaced in all three starts. As he did not have a competitive racing career, he will excel in any second career and is sound to tackle the upper levels. Rocket has no vices, is shod up front and is good in the stall. At this time, he will take an experienced handler and rider to restart him as he is young and green. Rocket has wonderful movement and is sure to stand out in any ring!
Adoption fee to be determined as he is still under evaluation.

Schedule an appointment to visit this horse
Want to schedule an appointment to come see this horse? You can schedule right online! We offer two types of appointments- farm visits and live video chats. Video chat appointments are offered to applicants who are far away and would like to meet the horse they are interested in to either adopt sight unseen or would like to determine if the horse is for them before making a long trip. During video appointments we are able to do everything just as a physical visit- we can ride, groom, jog and show a 360 degree view of each horse. Please remember, an appointment does not secure the availability of a horse, however you may place a non-refundable deposit on a horse you are interested in.

About Adoption Fees & Deposit Holds
As we are a 501(c)3 non-profit, we are not resellers, but DO feel it is fair to recoup the value of a horse depending on the amount of training the horse has had, it's athletic ability as well as it's resume. After all, you are getting a mount who has experience in a certain career set- whether they are a seasoned trail horse to already showing or a horse who has full upper level potential.
At times we will have very low fees as well. Usually, we have holiday or season specials. These horses are usually either very green, are overlooked due to previous injury or are limited in their career paths. There is nothing wrong with them and often their fees are low to simply find them a home so we may make room for more horses- our average waiting list is up to 8 weeks, or 60 days long.
If you are interested in a horse, a 20% deposit may be made on the horse's fee/price. This is a non-refundable deposit and ensure's a security on the horse for 5 days. Pricing for horses are subject to change at any time, as well as availability. Scheduling an appointment will NOT gaurantee a horse's availablility. A deposit may be made through PayPal. We cannot guarantee a horse's availability if a deposit is not placed. We do not "hold" horses otherwise. When placing a deposit, you ensure the horse's availability as well as current price.
If paperwork has not been completed (contract, bill of sale and submitting remainder of adoption fee) It will be assumed that the interested party has abandoned their interest in the horse and will forfeit their depost.
"Sight unseen" and out of state/country adoptions are allowed. We use insured and professional shippers and will constantly keep parties updated on their horse's shipping and progress. All interested parties will be financially responsible for health certificates as well as required paper work for the transportation company.
If you are adopting sight unseen, we will do our absolute best to provide all video and photo correspondence regarding the horse you are interested in. We encourage you to take advantage of our "live" appointments via video phone to view horses.
Horses may be tried on premises - no trials will be allowed.
