Reporting abuse and neglect
The place for you to begin is with the local law enforcement agency, which will be a municipal police department if the horse is kept within city limits or the county sheriff’s department if the horse is in the country.  But, before you call, be sure to get your facts straight and organized.  Remain calm, so you do not appear to the law enforcement officer taking your complaint to be an hysterical do-gooder.  Simply relate your facts in a calm, detailed, careful fashion.
Law enforcement will want the following information from you: Your name and phone number, description of the horse and the horse's condition, location of the horse with enough detail to permit the horse to be located, and the name, if known, of the owner or "caretaker" of the horse.
In some cases local law enforcement is not equipped or trained in equine neglect and abuse investigations so they will contact  S.C.A.R.E. or another equine investigative rescue group for for assistance in following up on your complaint.
The links below will direct you to county contact information.
