5. Report animal cruelty
Even folks who don't live or work amongst horses themselves often see these animals on a daily basis, whether it be behind a fence on a farm or pulling a carriage in a busy metropolis. Keeping an eye out and reporting abuses or neglect to authorities is often the only way put a stop to it.
6. Support horses in the wild
There are tens of thousands of wild horses and burros roaming rangelands across America. The ASPCA encourages voters to support local and federal legislation to protect these animals.
7. Make sure your horse has a friend
Those lucky enough to own a horse as a companion know just how social these animals are, which is why every horse should have a friend like themselves. Equine behaviorists recommend that horses be kept with at least one other animal around for company, and there are no shortage of abandoned horses that would be happy to fill that role.
8. Be prepared when disaster strikes
When disaster strikes, like fires and floods, animals rely on humans to step in to keep them safe. The ASPCA provides a guideline on how horse owner and those who live nearby to them can help in times of crisis.
