Arabian Horse Association Mission Supporters

Opposing the AHA Equine Slaughter Endorsement


Leave a comment

ALERT FOR MEMBERS

This is an update on our ongoing effort to convince the Arabian Horse Association to reject their previous endorsement US horse slaughter, and adopt a “neutral” position instead;
As some of you may know, our Motion to Rescind their endorsement was presented at the Convention last November but was withdrawn on a “technicality.”
The BOD of the Arabian Horse Association will be convening for their next meeting in May.  The following motion has been submitted, and is on the agenda for a vote:

____________________________________________________________________________

Whereas, the Arabian Horse Association has individual members both supporting and opposing a federal legislative ban on horse slaughter, and
Whereas, the American Horse Council has adopted a neutral position in recognition of their member organizations and individuals who hold opposing views,
Therefore, Be It Moved that the Arabian Horse Association hold no official position regarding the reestablishment of equine slaughter facilities in the United States.
______________________________________________________________________________

Several Board members have already expressed opposition to this Motion, and they continue to use the Arabian Horse Association as a platform to promote their personal pro-slaughter agenda with complete disregard for the membership they are supposed to represent.

We are asking members of the AHA to please contact their Regional Directors, as well as President Lance Walters, and urge them to pass this motion establishing a “neutral” position on the issue of horse slaughter.

It is imperative that members contact their Regional Directors as well as president Lance Walters and ask that they SUPPORT this motion.
If the BOD doesn’t hear from the membership at this point in time then they will conclude that their personal opinion is held by the vast majority of the membership and they will defeat the Board Motion that has been advanced.

Please take a moment to send an email….and be sure to ‘CC’ Lance Walters and Glenn Petty, in case your email gets misplaced.
