Have you ever walked into the barn only to discover that your horse was apparently rubbing his tail all night long?
Welcome to “For the Love of Horses” a blog from Keith Dane , vice president of equine protection at The Humane Society of the United States. Like you, we at The HSUS love horses—and we celebrate the special bond we all share with them. We’re dedicated to protecting equines from abuse, abandonment, slaughter and other forms of cruelty, and work to achieve this goal by guiding and transforming public policy, assisting law enforcement with rescues and investigations, and educating the horse-owning public about responsible care and stewardship.
Galloping your horse along the surf, water splashing up around you as the sun sets – it’s on any rider’s bucket list. As summer draws to an end, some beaches will once again open up to horses

Many riding camps offer campers the option of bringing home a camp horse at the end of the summer. Camps save on the upkeep costs of their horses, and some lucky campers get to enjoy having “a horse of their own” for the year until it’s time for the horse to return to the camp in the early summer.

By Jan Westmark The book Sandsablaze is receiving rave reviews! I love to read and I love horses – so if I can combine both and read a great horse story then I am a happy camper. I just finished reading the book Sandsablaze, Grand Prix Greatness from Harrisburg to the Olympics , by Kimberly Gatto, and suffice it to say I am a very happy camper – even without the s’mores! Sandsablaze is a great ride through history. The book kicks off with a foreward by George Morris that is a fascinating look at what life was like in the show jumping world in the 1970s.
