Ban Horse Tripping in Nevada

Straight from the Horse's Heart

Bulletin from Help Animals Nevada

URGENT – Nevada Horses Need Your Help

Horse tripping is an event where a horse, often a yearling, is released into a pen and the participant (on foot or on horseback) ropes the horse’s forelegs and brings him to the ground. Horse tripping can cause the horse fatal injuries and is incredibly inhumane because the horses are often submitted to electric prodding and are rendered too lame to walk prior to slaughter. Senate Bill 364 will ban horse tripping in Nevada, but we need your support to make this bill law in Nevada.
We need your support to BAN HORSE TRIPPING! Please TAKE ACTION one of two ways:
Attend the Senate Natural Resources Hearing on 4/6/11 at 3:30pm. The more people present, the more likely this bill will become law.
Send a Letter of Support. Click this link to submit your letter of support: Support SB 364. Please include your home address in the letter. Per Senator Allison Copening’s request, letters of support are to be sent to Help Animals NV individually, to be delivered to her office en masse.
