REAL HORSE RESCUES TV Premiere Saturday, July 4th | 6 AM (EST) ON ABC-WTEN
Original Series Created by Susan Kayne Focuses on Equine Welfare
ALBANY, NY, July 2, 2015 – Real Horse Rescues, a 13-part weekly series, debuts Saturday, July 4th at 6 AM on ABC-WTEN. Each episode features once unwanted and slaughter bound horses, who are now shining in their new roles as teachers, healers, therapists, and competitive performance partners. This will be the first time on network TV that viewers will experience the true stories behind redeemed horses.
“I wanted to create an educational and meaningful series for viewers, not only to learn about the serious welfare issues facing horses, but to bring visibility to our local equine rescues and sanctuaries as a community resource.” Kayne, creator and host of RHR, continued, “It is my hope to inspire viewers to discover the joy of horses for themselves, and to foster the public’s participation with these organizations.”
