“It’s not easy being a spokesperson for the horse slaughter industry,” admitted former U.S. Congressman Charlie Stenholm (D-TX), who was a keynote speaker at the United Horsemen’s Summit of the Horse 2011 Conference held Jan. 3-6, 2011 in Las Vegas, NV. The focus of the conference was equine issues such as horse slaughter, restoring horse values and working with Congress on these discussion points.

“Head outside this hotel and ask folks on the street if they believe horses should be processed for human consumption, and they will look at you and wonder if you’ve been drinking something. It’s certainly not an easy subject.”

Stenholm’s presentation was titled, “The politics of land and horses,” and he challenged those in the audience to get out and educate their friends, neighbors and elected officials about equine issues.
