This "organization" is a thinly veiled disguise for a few individuals whose sole agenda is to financially gain from implementing equine slaughter in the US. It should never have received a 501(c)3 status from the IRS.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get rid of it completely.

This is a perfect example of why the IRS and FTC need to research non-profit and charities for viability and compliance. This United Horsemens Front is a cover for soliciting funds for politicians like Mr. Duquette's favorite, Rep. Sue Wallis (Wyoming). Their travel expenses to promote horse slaughter for Chevideco of France (who still owes Texas thousands of $$$ in fines) can be raised covertly and fraudulently. Donations will enhance the overbreeding and slaughter of companion/service industry animals for their company's (Unified Equine LLC) profit, which means it is not 'non-profit. This 'charity' has no board of directors, no mission statement, no income report...and IRS hasn't noticed something wrong with this picture yet?

You must be kidding. This is just a group headed by Sue Wallis the WY state rep who has been trying to gather investors to bring the Sue Wallis Slaughterhouses Inc. back to her state and yours. It is all about the money. I imagine the non "profits" are going right into her coffers for her trips to lobby.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They manipulate people saying horse slaughter is good for the horse because they are killed humanely. Wrong. They tell people the meat is healthy. Wrong. It is riddled with drugs that even the FDA say are not for human consumption. They believe their rights are being taken away if they can't kill their horses. Wrong. You can't torture any animald just because you own him. They are a bunch of self serving profiteers who promote irresponsible ownership and irresponsible breeding.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Be honest. You are not horsemen. You are horse exploiters. So the name should be United Horse Exploiters.

Their name is misleading. I joined thinking they were horse lovers . What a mistake! They should be renamed the United Horse Slaughter Industry Supporters. They are not lovers of horses, they only love the money they make from them. When these same horses have served their purpose, this group promotes slaughtering them to eek out every last penny. They claim it is their right to do what they want with their animals because its their property. They disparagingly refer to anyone concerned with humane treatment as "freaks" or "AR's. To attempt to make the idea of consuming horsemeat more palatable, they claim there is no issue with horses being given drugs that are banned in horses for human consumption by the FDA .I was very disappointed in this group.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

several instances where they claim to promote horse welfare. Instead their solution to every issue facing the horse industry is to slaughter them.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

change their name to really reflect who they are.

This charity is not a charity, it is a front for bringing back horse slaughter to the USA. They hide behind the guise of horse welfare, when really all they want to do is line their pockets with money from horse slaughter plants. Sue Wallis who is President of the group, already has the plans drawn up for a plant in Wyoming and also wants to develope a mobile slaughter plant.

I find their whole persona to be deceitful and misleading to the general public. I would rate this Charity very low. I would like to see an independent audit and if a 501c3, only 20% of their time can be spent lobbying, yet I firmly believe that their lobbying consisits of over 60% of their focus.

I have encountered this organization on FB, many times, because that is where they essentially exist. they had one summitt this year, which was a pro-slaughter event, and have been lobbying, I do not see anything productive coming out of this group.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This is a lobby group for a fringe collection of horse breeders who support the insidious business of horse slaughter. How this qualifies as a non-profit is beyond me.

As a lifelong horse owner and trainer, I am well versed in the horse industry, and can say confidently this group does not represent "United Horseman." Most horse people are opposed to horse slaughter, primarily because of the brutality inherent in the slaughter pipeline.

I've heard non-horse owning livestock producers parrot their misinformation.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

As a front for businesses that cause animal suffering, they should have their non-profit status revoked.
