Re: “Walking Horse Group Slams Tennessean, Paper Stands By Reporting

Thank you for continuing to cover accurately the abuses and soring of the so-called Tennessee Walking Horse show industry in the big lick shows, especially the so called "Celebration."
I personally used to show my natural BAREFOOT walking horses - but when I realized that I had to go through DQPs (with barefoot horses!) and all that ridiculously necessary level of inspection because of the BIG LICK people making such a horrific life for their horses - I lost interest and now I only trail ride my beautiful horses. (And I joined the NWHA and other similar organizations that stood up to soring and abuse, and stopped paying fees to TWHBEA and other organizations that were tacitly allowing it to continue. Take away the money in the shows and breeding fees and that will kill the industry, we thought. )
Turns out that even after all these years since the HPA - that there are a certain number of people out there that continue to sore, abuse, and show these big lick horses. Keep the pressure ON and let's get the PAST act through and SHUT DOWN Big Lick Wallking Horses forever.
Don't try to play by their rules - they have shown us for 40+ years that they cannot self-police or prevent soring in their horses. It's all on video with numerous people (who are probably scared to show the truth because they are bullied by these people) but I have seen it with my own eyes and am willing to testify to what I saw at shows and barns over many years and late night shows.
GO TENNESSEEAN! Keep the pressure on this horrific sadistic industry and bring back our NATURALLY GAITED HORSES!
