Every year thousands of horses race around Australia. Sadly though every year thousands of racehorses are sent to slaughter because they are too slow, not cut out for racing, have a minor injury or through a stud dispersal.

While we have faced the fact we have higher chances of being bitten by a shark then changing the racing industry, we also know we can make a different to hundreds of racehorses around the country. North West Equine Rescue INC have vowed to take off the track racehorses when their career is over (sometimes before it has even started) and making their life different. Giving them a chance they would have otherwise missed.

Together with the help of our followers and trainers we have vowed to MAKE A DIFFERENCE and we NEED YOUR help to make that different!!

The Facts:
- 20,000 Thoroughbred's are sent to slaughter EVERY year.
- 80% of racehorses don't get a life after racing!
- Over 18,000 Thoroughbreds are born every year in Australia.. only 300 will see a racetrack!
- In 2012 on the day of the Melbourne Cup 37 racehorses we sent to slaughter from Bundaberg QLD alone.
- It costs an estimated $2800.00 to successfully re-educate a racehorse and bring it down from race feed.

To rescue as many sick, injured and slaughter bound horses as possible. To set their lives on a different path and give them the second chance they deserve! NWER have set out to raise $5,000.00 to rescue 7 thoroughbreds facing slaughter, re-educate them and rehome them to loving homes.
