The slaughter of horses needs to stop now.

It is important for anti-slaughter people to meet to discuss strategies in getting our message across and legislation passed that will effectively stop horse slaughter in the US forever. ~ HfH

The slaughter of horses needs to stop now.

      Arlene, last year I simply asked the host, andwas imm ediately sent an invitation. I wasn’t able to attend, but the owner of a large and prominent New York equine rescue went. I hope you can go!

      I wish I could attend this year, it’s just a couple of hours drive for me, but I’ll be a week into my thousand-mile anti-slaughter RIDE FOR THEIR LIVES by then.

    Two days ago, I emailed Equine Summit, & today I telephoned. They requested people do so. I have not heard back.

    I wonder who you have to be in order to be an “Invited Guest?”
    have been pretty active in anti-horse slaughter, wild horses, etc., for 7 years. And not just sitting at the computer.
    Maybe politicians, celebrities, members of animal organizations, like HSUS?

    This is very important, but the “boots on the ground,” grassroots, are the backbone. And need more information & education all the time. And you get so much more going to one of these Summits, Conventions.

    Obviously, I would love to go, & the reason not being to see celebrities. Although this is fantastic to have such high-power speakers.

    But honestly, I would love to see & hear John Holland again <3 🙂
