Dallas, an Appaloosa born in 1989, was one of 27 Camp Horses and Ponies rescued by Equine Advocates at a bankrupt NY tourist attraction back in 1997. We went up against a known killer buyer who would have sold the animals for slaughter. Every year, thousands of “Camp Horses” end up at auction and often sold for slaughter at summer’s end. It is imperative that parents research riding camps before sending their children to one where the animals are leased for the season from dealers and killer buyers. There are good camps that keep their horses and retire them. One needs to take the time to find them.
Dallas had been adopted at the time, but came back to us in 2008. He spends his days alongside his best buddy, Bobby II Freedom, up at the main barn or in the field known at “The Heartbreakers.” Stop by and say hello!
