Horses in Crisis


For many of you this will be the first time you have heard about the documentary Protect The Harvest and the United Horsemen have been collaborating on. This is just a little over 8 minutes of hours and hours of interviews and footage. Please spread this everywhere. We are going to tell the truth, so the whole country can see what's really happening.

Sincerely, Dave Duquette, United Horsemen
