Please take this time to set-up a meeting with your Members of Congress
 While Congress is home for the August recess, many members of Congress and candidates running for office use this time to host town hall meetings, attend civic events, political rallies, and meet with constituents at their in-district office.

During this time they are out talking to their constituents and this is a great opportunity to remind them how important HR503/S727 "The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act" is to you and to the American people.

A lot is at stake in the November elections. It is important that lawmakers and candidates remember the important role our horses play in our country.  Please ask your Members of Congress to support the passage of HR503 and S727 "The Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act".  Any blockage of this legislation will have a devastating effect on our culture as we know it.  EU countries are banning meat tainted by drugs that are commonly given to horses which include, antibiotics, wormers and bute. While horsemeat is not sold in the US, it is exported from Canada and Mexico to the EU and to Japan, where it is considered a delicacy.  Many of the horses that are brutally slaughtered in Mexican and Canadian slaughter houses come from the US.

Help us end the suffering of our American Horses. How can a country that was built on the backs of our horses ignore the people who wish to give them the quality of life they deserve?

Please, Rise Up and make that meeting for the horses!
 Thank you for all you do.
