Real Horse Rescues is an original groundbreaking equine advocacy series.

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

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.

The general public, and even most of the equine spectator fan-base, is largely unaware of the threats facing horses today. Our broadcasts connect the public with their local equine rescues, sanctuaries, and shelters as a community resource for education and enrichment. Our viewers have donated funds, sponsored or adopted horses, volunteered their services, and spread awareness of equine welfare issues.
