Horse Authority: In the News
As of 2019, Horse Authority’s equine and news expertise are highlighted and utilized as a source for mainstream media outlets. Similarly, our work is included in two books, with another on the way. Its focus is on equine law.
Our in-depth news investigation after a pony’s death, allegedly at the end of a needle, also landed us on the front page of The New York Times. Then, the investigative TV news series Full Measure sourced Horse Authority (formerly Rate My Horse PRO) after dozens of dead animals were found on the property of a Virginia non-profit horse rescue. And the list goes on.
To date, EQUUS is the only major equine magazine to publish information about our work, while also utilizing us as a source.
Are you a member of the press that needs to interview equine experts or horse welfare advocates? As journalists, Horse Authority’s team knows how to help and is happy to do so, whenever possible.
We also work closely, in the background, with authorities needing help with animal cruelty cases. These interactions are kept in strict confidence. Feel free to use us as a resource. If we don’t know the answer, we will get you to someone who does.
Full Measure with Sharyl Attkisson
The syndicated investigative news series Full Measure sourced Horse Authority (formerly Rate My Horse PRO) in late 2015 after a horrific animal cruelty case at a Virginia horse rescue.
Sharyl Attkisson is an Emmy winning journalist. In this episode, she explores the factors that may lead horse rescuers down a path of animal cruelty.
