Real Horse Rescues is an original groundbreaking equine advocacy series.
This marked the first time on network TV that viewers experienced the true stories of redeemed horses -- once unwanted, now shining in their new roles as teachers, healers, therapists, companions, and competitive performance partners.
On ABC-WTEN, Real Horse Rescues was available to 1,000,000+ people in 500,000+ households, across 14 counties in Upstate New York.
In 13-weekly episodes viewers learned about equine welfare issues. Real Horse Rescues juxtaposes the reality of abuse, drugging, neglect, over-breeding, and slaughter with our evolving social relationship with horses. Guests offered fresh insights from the front lines of rescue, and through educational segments RHR provided real world solutions to help at-risk horses. The hard facts coupled with the majestic presence of horses and heart-warming tales of redemption are a point-of-entry to inspire viewers to action.
