- R.T. Fitch ~ Co-Founder/President
R.T. Fitch is a jack-of-all-trades. In the past, he has worked with whales, dolphins, sea lions, and penguins at Sea Life Park in Hawaii.
First introduced to horses by his wife, Terry, his fondness for all things equine has become an obsession. They spent several years in Brazil where they met Terry’s current equine companion, Apache.
Once back in the U.S. with Apache, their herd of rescued horses grew as they donated their time to support equine rescue efforts in Texas and Louisiana. The highlight of their rescue career came during the equine rescue efforts after hurricanes Katrina and Rita as outlined in Kye Mortensen’s book, Horses of the Storm.
An outspoken equine welfare advocate R.T. is the co-founder and President of the Wild Horse Freedom Federation and the author of the much acclaimed book “Straight from the Horse’s Heart: A Spiritual Ride through Love, Loss and Hope“. He and Terry live on a small farm outside of Houston Texas where they care for and enjoy their rescued horses, R.T.’s best buddy- Roxy the Border Collie, cats, Koi and resident deer.
