Equine Advocates Education Center for the humane treatment of horses


Paddock Graphics

Paddock GraphicThroughout the Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary we have a graphic at each paddock that features the equines who reside there. A graphic generally provides the ages and breeds of the horses and the circumstances from which they were rescued.

Visitors learn about the areas and industries from which we rescue equines: PMU Mares and their foals (the Pregnant Mare Urine industry for making hormone replacement drugs), Wild Mustangs and Burros, Thoroughbred and Standardbred racing, work horses and mules from traditional Pennsylvania farms, Carriage horses, Riding stable/Dude ranch horses, Show horses and Petting zoo donkeys and miniature horses.

Unfortunately, the one thing that most of the equines have in common is that they were on their way to slaughter when rescued. We hope that this year the Federal Government will pass legislation making it illegal to slaughter equines for human consumption or to transport them to other countries for this purpose.
