Equine Advocates’ Barn-to-Barn Open House

In 1996, Equine Advocates, under the leadership of Susan Wagner, started saving horses from slaughter, abuse, and neglect.  In 2004, they established a 140-acre rescue farm on Route 66 just north of Chatham village.  Today, EA has nearly 100 horses, ponies, donkeys and even a couple of goats under their care, many of whom were brought to their attention by law enforcement officials.  The facility, which regularly holds open days for the general public, has become a popular destination for 4-H clubs, scout troops and school class trips.  On Saturday, June 5, E.A. held a special open house at their beautiful property, which is a model for the way horses—and, indeed, all of us—would like to live.
