Melanie Bowles–cofounder of Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary

Melanie Bowles–cofounder, with her husband Jim, of Proud Spirit Horse Sanctuary–discusses the history of the Sanctuary (it began some 18 years ago, taking in one horse, Cody, on five acres in Myakka City, FL) and evolution (it’s now a 320-acre facility in Mena, AR that has provided a safe, nurturing home to more than 150 abused, neglected or unwanted horses), her books, including the latest, “Hoof Prints: More Stories From Proud Spirit,” (the first, “The Horses Of Proud Spirit,” was the basis for an Emmy-winning PBS special of the same name), and her view of such timely equine-oriented topics as horse racing and horse slaughter, including the widespread practice of slaughtering race horses for profit, and more.
