2014 American Equine Summit Videos

2014 American Equine Summit

We are pleased to share videos from our 2014 American Equine Summit, organized and hosted by Susan Wagner, President & Founder of Equine Advocates. 

The information provided by our distinguished expert speakers will help the viewer better understand why the horrific practice of horse slaughter needs to end now, why our government is allowing for the brutal round-ups of our precious wild horse and burro herds from our public lands and why the heinous PMU (pregnant mares’ urine) industry, once primarily in Canada, is now big business in China and third-world countries where pregnant mares live in deplorable conditions, and they and their offspring end up at slaughter.

Please share these on your Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin pages as well as your websites and blogs.  Thank you!
