The Youth's Equine Alliance (YEA!) was introduced in 2012 by Robin Warren at the International Equine Conference. Our youth advocates raise awareness about horses and burros, both wild and domestic in order to inspire other people to also speak up for equines. Through education, activities and joining together as teams, the youth hope to encourage children's admiration of horses and burros and motivate people of all ages to be a voice for equines.

Stop "Slap Ass Friday"

I am not bully-bait. Hi, my name is Robin Warren and I am in 7th grade. At my school the boys touch the girls butts in the crowded hallways. They call it “slap-a** Friday.” When my mom and I went to report it to the school administrator, he suggested that I use my butt as bully bait. To be more specific he said that all we can do is for me to NEXT time look at my watch and note what time and where it happens so they can find who does it on the cameras. When my mom asked that he just review footage from previous Fridays he said that wouldn’t work. He left the meeting saying “next time it happens…” and I am just not willing to use my butt as bully-bait! I cannot  help that I cannot see or name who is doing it – you don’t know how crowded our hallways are! These bullies are getting away with it. I don’t think any girl should be touched when she doesn’t want to be touched. It doesn’t matter if it is elementary, middle, or high school it is never okay to touch a girl when she doesn’t want to be touched.  The really sad part is that my school district has a really big problem with bullying and they aren’t doing enough to protect us.   Please join me on asking my school district to take action to stop bullying today!

Governor: Keep Nevada's free-roaming horses on the land

This is a picture of Ava, our three-year-old friend who loves horses and wants to continue to grow up with wild horses. We all do, but the State of Nevada and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) frequently takes free-roaming horses off the land. UPDATE: We have reason to celebrate, as both the BLM and the State of Nevada have recently announced changes to the way they sell horses to keep them out of slaughterhousesand we are very glad about that! However, we also think the horses should be left on the land to continue their valuable role in the Nevada ecosystem instead of spending time in short- or long-term holding facilities at the taxpayer’s expense. Through years of experience and observation of wild herds, renowned wild horse ecologist, biologist and author, Craig Downer, believes wild horses should live on wildlife reserves and be allowed to get to a population that is determined by nature. Craig, along with other concerned people and wild horse organizations, want wild horses and burros preserved and protected and have the expertise to help accomplish this goal.
