Priscilla Feral, FoA President, kicking off the rally with a rousing speech to the large gathering of wild horse advocates at Lafayette Square Park, across from the White House. People travelled from all over the country to demand an end to the BLM’s wild horse round-up and removal scheme.
Featured speaker Ginger Kathrens, an Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and Executive Director of the Cloud Foundation—dedicated to the preservation of wild horses, and producer of the stunning Cloud documentaries, which document the mustang round-ups.
Actor Wendie Malick, star of “Frasier” and “Just Shoot Me!,” gave a stirring speech explaining why she’s such a dedicated wild horse advocate and why she supports our campaign.
