Susan is the resident Equine Care Manager at Equine Advocates Sanctuary in Columbia County (NY).  She oversees 80+ magnificent equine beings -- each rescued from abuse, neglect, or slaughter.  Susan welcomes visitors by appointment.

"The Sanctuary is the perfect place to introduce people to horses and begin a dialogue about their plight from a place of compassion".

REAL HORSE RESCUES (ABC-WTEN) is an original groundbreaking equine advocacy series created and hosted by Susan Kayne. Episodes reveal the true worth of horses, and dire consequences they face without a retirement plan. Viewers learn backstories of redeemed horses -- once unwanted, now safe and shining in their new roles. 
EQUINE ADVOCATES

DID YOU KNOW that every year 160,000+ purposefully-bred, domesticated, trusting horses are forced to die in Canada & Mexico?

Still young and full of life, horses ship to slaughter plants from racetracks, summer camps, backyards, and even elite breeding stables. They are priced for meat and brutally butchered. No one cares about their age, their trophies, or where they came from.  

Will you join Susan and #BeAVoiceForHorses.

Horses are as much a part 

of my life 

as breathing.
