Please copy and forward this email if you agree with the intention.

It is not necessary to watch, just please do not turn away, the problems are real and the videos are there if anyone needs a prompt.
The idea is for us to find ways to raise awareness, improve welfare and take responsibility for euthanasia rather than palm off our unused horses at the end of their working lives.

We need your help to raise awareness and funds through sponsored rides and shows. By becoming members of ILPH and other organisations,signing petitions any help you can offer. Copy and post this email in your local tack store. The work goes on, the numbers are getting better but live transport in these days of freezer lorries are unneccessary for any animal.

Forgive Lucy her spelling, her message is from the heart.

And this is their lot

There will have been many petitions you will probably have signed in relation to USA slaughter and Premarin production, don't stop now, they need your help

Help in anyway you can through shouting loud in riding clubs, pony clubs, on the signature of your emails, please, please, please, for the love of horses

Ask people to have the guts to have their horses destroyed at home when they no longer are able to enjoy a full life, know and take responsibility for the end of life, it is not the easy option, but surely they deserve the dignity not to go to strangers and suffer at the end?

You do not need to watch each of these videos to get the message, PLEASE DO NOT TURN AWAY, this happens every day, RAISE A SHOUT IN ANYWAY YOU CAN.

At every opportunity on forums, at schools, colleges, clubs, ask for help, make it a bigger issue, ask with a smile, know that those who have already travelled in heat, dust, crowded containers, dehydrated, fearful, in pain, are no longer in pain, their abuse has ended, our horses are loved and cared for, what happens if something happens and they are sold on, where might they end up, we can all help, every small way, whether by financial donation or petition to raise awareness. We may not change the world, but we can help make it better.

UK slaughter

If you need more convincing

Premarin & PMU farming, ask your GP what is in HRT treatment, take responsibility

Mary Tyler-Moore appeal
There are many websites UK, USA and global where if you can be bothered, your support would be truly appreciated.

If you really have any love for horses here are a few petitions to get started, please take the time to add your voice, every one can help.

There are many more, and if you have sufficient funds to offer financial assistance without robbing the charities you already support, that too would be gratefully received. Check that your donations are given to registered and authorised charities who have influence to change the lives and deaths of horses for the better. THANK YOU

we do lots of fundraising at club for the ilph, we used to rescue ourselves a couple years ago it was heart breaking and expensive and when i changed jobs i didn't have the income to continue with costly vet bills.
People who are cruel to animals are sick and twisted, it boils my blood just thinking about it.
I've witnessed cruelty that before rescuing i couldn't have had nightmares about and we must strive to support the horsey societies as much as possible.
i showed my children an ilph video once and they sat there in silence tears rolling down their cheeks from then on they were passionate about horse awareness and helping to protect them against human stupidty and repulsive behaviour, it makes me feel sad that i am human and part of a race of beings that can be so utterly disgusting and cruel but we do our best to take in any creature that needs a home and to help raise money for the ilph as often as possible!

Human Beings can be the most wonderful or the most savage of any creature.
Your poor children, I try hard not to look away, but sometimes I do not need the graphics to educate me. You are doing your best jobs by showing them and demonstrating love and kindness and fun, amongst family & friends & horses. Children grow up copying, your photos show they have great examples to emulate, smiles say it all. xxxxx
