Horses are iconic animals who have helped Americans in many ways since the earliest days of our nation's history. But these beautiful creatures face many threats.
Thousands of American horses are slaughtered and shipped overseas for foreign dinner plates. Racing horses are inflicted with pain & caustic chemicals in a practice known as "soring." These are just a couple examples of the threats facing these animals. The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act would prohibit the slaughter of horses for human consumption in the U.S. and end their export for slaughter abroad. The Prevent All Soring Tactics Act would eliminate the abusive act of soring horses.
