This page is dedicated to giving you, the reader, an insider’s glimpse into the lives of the people who attempt to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves.
But it is important to remember that we are not here to either promote ourselves or each other as there is just one creed that we all live by;
“It’s all about the Horses!’
Author of “Straight from the Horse’s Heart” and freelance writer/reporter, R.T. Fitch is a jack-of-all-trades.
In the past, he has worked with whales, dolphins, sea lions, and penguins at Sea Life Park in Hawaii.
First introduced to horses by his wife, Terry, his fondness for all things equine has become an obsession. They spent several years in Brazil where they met Terry’s current equine companion, Apache.
Once back in the US with Apache, their herd of rescued horses grew as they donated their time to support equine rescue efforts in Texas and Louisiana. The highlight of their rescue career came during the equine rescue efforts after hurricanes Katrina and Rita as outlined in Ky Mortensen’s book,Horses of the Storm.
An outspoken equine advocate, R. T. sat for many years on the Board of Directors for Habitat for Horses and is the President and Co-Founder of the Wild Horse Freedom Federation. He is a charter member of the Equine Welfare Alliance and fully supports the efforts of the Cloud Foundation.
He and Terry live on a small farm outside of Houston Texas where they care for and enjoy their rescued horses, dog, cats, Koi and resident deer.
