In 1985, Victoria Goss took Bella Run Equine co-founder, Rachel Bendler, to her first slaughter sale. She drilled into Rachel's brain that if a rescue were to survive, wise choices must be made, and every penny must be micromanaged and used responsibly. Among traders and dealers masquerading as "rescues," Rachel saw a need to speak up for the horses that are overlooked while being someone that potential adopters could rely on. She committed to pulling these slaughter-bound horses responsibly, the right way.
In 2015 alone, over 125000 American horses were hauled across the borders to Canada and Mexico. They are unwanted horses. These horses need homes and homes were looking for horses. Zack and Rachel have made their mission to bridge the gap. They started saving horses from kill auctions together, rehabilitating them, and finding them homes. For now, they have around 30 horses in their barren. Under Zack and Rachel’s good care, they finally start to enjoy the wonderful life as being an equine.
