Bring together a consortia of collective expertise and experience of the nation’s leading equine welfare advocates and organizations.

Act decisively and swiftly when the welfare of the American Wild Horses and Burros are threatened through legislation, litigation or commercial misrepresentation.

Proactively pursue legal action against entities that pose either a current or potential threat to the safety and welfare of American Wild Horses and Burros.

Endeavor to put concerned people and the advocacy between Wild Equids and extinction.

Wild Horse Freedom Federation, through research and investigations, released evidence exposing a Bureau of Land Management’s wild horse long-term holding contractor selling wild horses to an alleged “kill buyer” where the horses most likely went to slaughter.

Wild Horse Freedom Federation uncovered evidence purporting to show the contractor selling at least 34 federally protected wild horses.

Thanks to the behind the scenes work of the investigators from Wild Horse Freedom Federation (WHFF), in conjunction with Equine Welfare Alliance (EWA), evidence was supplied to federal investigators and a known kill buyer, Dorian Ayache, has been indicted.
