Southeastern Pennsylvania has one of the largest horse populations in the country. Unfortunately, many of them aren't well taken care of or are neglected.
That neglect usually takes the form of horses not having enough food to eat or water to drink. Sometimes, the horses are kept in such poor conditions where they can hurt themselves or can't move around.
That's why horse rescuers are so important. They help horses escape the abusive situations, help to rehabilitate them, and possibly even get the horses healthy enough to be adopted.
Ten rescued horses that were assigned trainers this summer will compete to show how far they've come.
