Spellbinder Books: Meet Author - Bernice Ende

Screen Shot 2018-11-15 at 10.20.05 AM.png

Riding 2,000 miles on horseback from Montana to New Mexico sounds like a crazy but thrilling dream - or pure hardship and exhaustion.

According to Bernice Ende, the trip was all that and more. Since swinging her leg over the saddle for that first long ride in 2005 (at the age of 50), Ende has logged more than 29,000 miles in the saddle, crisscrossing North America on horseback - alone. More than once she has traversed the Great Plains, the Southwest deserts, the Cascade Range, and the Rocky Mountains. Along the way, she discovered a sense of community and love of place that unites people wherever they live. From 2014-2016, she was the first person to ride coast to coast and back again in one trek, winning acclaim from the international Long Riders' Guild and awe from the people she met along the way.

Saddle up and come along for the journey of a lifetime.

Still Seeking: Information leading to an arrest

Reward offered in Big Pine, California, for information leading to arrest in equine cruelty case

The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the brutal attack on horses at the Big Pine Saddle Club.

The Case: The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office responded to a truck set on fire at the Big Pine Saddle Club earlier this month. After arriving to the scene, officers found that multiple horses had been stabbed and suffered injuries from apparent blunt for trauma to their heads. The horses required extensive medical treatment to survive.

Animal Cruelty: Securing the serious attention and engagement of law enforcement, prosecutors and residents in cases involving allegations of cruelty to animals is an essential step in protecting the whole community. The connection between animal cruelty and human violence is well documented. Studies show a correlation between animal cruelty and many other crimes, from narcotics and firearms violations to battery and sexual assault.

“The violent injuries inflicted upon these horses is atrocious,” said Crystal Moreland, California state director for the Humane Society of the United States. “We are hopeful that anyone with information about this heinous crime will come forward.”

The Investigators: The Inyo County Sheriff’s Office is investigating this case. Anyone with relevant information is asked to call 760-878-0383.

Resources: The Humane Society of the United States’ Animal Cruelty campaign raises public awareness and educates communities about the connection between animal cruelty and human violence while providing a variety of resources and support to law enforcement agencies, social work professionals, educators, legislators and families. We offer rewards in animal cruelty cases across the country and works to strengthen laws against animal cruelty.

The Humane Society of the United States doubled its standard cruelty reward from $2,500 to $5,000 thanks to a generous donation from a board member. To see information on statistics, trends, laws and animal cruelty categories, visit our animal cruelty statistics page.
