The Saving America’s Horses Initiative through its infrastructure and multimedia resources strives to provide a lingering impact on society about what is being done to protect the welfare and safety of the horse. Although some protective rules are being implemented at various racetracks to help stop the incessant flow of racehorses to slaughter; it’s evident that more must be done, including passing a federal ban on slaughter of horses for human consumption. Recent efforts to introduce changes to the horseracing industry from various camps, together with growing awareness of the need for corporate social responsibility, illustrate the convergence of good timing toward meaningful changes.
