Update #3 ·

Update on August 11, 2012

A few weeks ago we sent the signatures collected in this petition to the folks running this "race" and the Mayor of Omak. Unfortunately, the race was not canceled nor was a reply received back from either the mayor or the folks who host the race.

And if you get a moment, please take time to read this article by R.T. Fitch about the race...R.T. is a great advocate for the welfare of horses.

While we are saddened that the race will continue and take place this weekend we will not be deterred and we will pursue other methods to try to end this horrible excuse for entertainment.

Thanks so much for being a part of our cause!
