All Protests – Big and Small – Make a Difference

As I recently wrote, there is no better catalyst for moral progress than protest. And while we are understandably proud of the big numbers we’ve been able to mobilize at Santa Anita, Saratoga, and Belmont, make no mistake even a handful of people standing strong and resolute for the horses is a powerful statement – and makes a difference. Today, I’d like to express my deep gratitude to Animal Rights Rochester for carrying our banner at Finger Lakes Racetrack in western NY, and for letting that track and the surrounding community know that animal abuse/killing for lousy $2 bets will no longer be abided in 21st Century America. Thank you.

  1. Thank you for standing in solidarity with the Horses! Being a Voice for those without one is what has changed many wrongs by exposing the hidden truths.
    You BET—They DIE 🚫🏇🚫

  2. I am so very grateful to each and every individual who supports the HORSES and not the industry that cripples, kills and discards them!

    Thank you so very much!

    • I could ONLY get this worked up about Animals…..you humans in this “industry” I couldn’t give a rat’s ass about.Quit being lazy and get a REAL job..hopefully not working with animals.

  3. I am very ambivalent about ending horseracing since I have have been involved with it as a small farm horse breeder and racetrack worker. For most of my life I have owned my homebred thoroughbreds and taken in 1 nice rescue thoroughbred. I can see all the things wrong with racing but I have not given up hope that it can change. I support all that this group does because it is the only 1 really putting the “fear of God” into the industry. I’m hanging in for racing but if it does not correct the atrocities fast it will have to go. First priority: getting rid of claiming races now. Start there. If that does not stop the Simon Legrees from killing their horses then the rest if it will have to go too.
