This is a group for all who believe that all animals have a right to co-exist on this planet as they were meant to be, and that we owe a debt to horses by virtue of the enormous role they have played in humanity achieving what it has done.

You see, it's not really about the horses at all. It's about us. It's not about saving the horses, it's about saving our souls. No more, no less. Really.

Equine Justice is committed to advancing a different perspective on the area of equine rights. (I know, what rights?!) We are committed to getting people to let go of the idea of horses being "just animals" and therefore ours to do with as we please. For most of our existence, human beings have lived on this planet as though it was ours to do with as we please, by divine right no less. And look at us now. We seem to be finally realizing for whom the bell tolls. And we may have really done it to ourselves this time.

But many of us get that a reckoning is coming. Many are beginning to sense that the time is approaching when things must be made right. We are in the midst of a transformation that will determine the future of our life on this planet. It isn't certain we're going to make it as humanity is an uncertain experiment at best. Our belief that we are ordained to survive is from a fear that we just might not.

We need gentleness in the world. The forces of anger, vengeance and violence are wreaking havoc among us. What is needed is the strength of love. Of compassion. We must begin to make gentle this world. Personally, I also believe that we live in a time where an emerging feminine power is gaining strength. It's one reason, I think, women predominate in the equine world. Because we share a special affinity, nay understanding, with the horse. It's known through the heart, and the soul. We identify with them.

We have to get that we're all animals. Humans too. And that our "superior" intelligence and god-like intellects do not bestow upon us a greater right. No, just the opposite. Our great capacity to know, learn and understand, taps upon our shoulders like a sword knighting a soldier and charges us with a certain noblesse oblige, a duty to honor and protect. We were given the ability to think and reason not to dominate and exploit everything around us, but to appreciate and find humility in the awesome task of being entrusted with it's care and well-being. Our ability to understand should make us realize for whom the bell tolls. What we do unto the least of us, we do unto all of us.

If we are to start upon that path, what better place to start than with stopping the brutal slaughter of horses? “Remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird,” Harper Lee wrote in To Kill a Mockingbird. "That was the only time I ever heard Atticus say it was a sin to do something, and I asked Miss Maudie about it. 'Your father's right,' she said. 'Mockingbirds don't do one thing but make music for us to enjoy . . . but sing their hearts out for us. That's why it's a sin to kill a mockingbird.'” It was a story about good and innocence destroyed by evil. By saving horses we save ourselves.
