On July 4, 2015, Real Horse Rescues debuted on ABC-WTEN

For the first time, viewers in 500,000+ households across 14 counties in Upstate New York, heard the true stories of once abused, kill pen found, or slaughter-bound horses-- now shining in their new roles as teachers, healers, therapists, companions, and competitive performance partners. 


Real Horse Rescues juxtaposes the reality of equine abuse, drugging, neglect, over-breeding, and slaughter with our supposed evolving social relationship with horses. The general public, and even most of the equine spectator fan-base, is largely unaware of the threats facing horses today. The hard facts coupled with the majestic presence of horses and heart-warming tales of redemption provides a point-of-entry to inspire viewers to action.

Real Horse Rescues connects the public with local equine rescues, sanctuaries, and shelters as a community resource for education and enrichment. Viewers have donated funds, sponsored, and adopted horses, volunteered services, and spread awareness of equine welfare issues.

I absolutelyloved watching this! It's heartwarming, inspiring, informational, interesting, and admirable.

Every day, hundreds of horses & ponies who have done all that has been asked of them ... are dumped off at 'kill auctions'. The greatest chance these horses have to find safety is to tell their stories to the public.
