About the Filmmaker

Ms. Louise is an expert and inspirational speaker on issues involving wild and domestic equine welfare, preservation and horse slaughter. Her findings and presentations about the imminent and urgent health risks to humans, the unspeakable animal cruelties and the environmental impact caused by the capture, removal, transport and stockpiling of both wild and domestic horses to be slaughtered for their meat, have raised the bar for animal welfare in the U.S., elevated the sense of urgency for these issues, and have united equine advocates globally. Ms Louise’s work is featured and referenced in international news publications, syndicated news and documented in the award winning film, SAVING AMERICA’S HORSES: A NATION BETRAYED, the transcripts of which have been invited to be part of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Research Library collection.
