Fred is treated very kindly at Saddlecrest as well as the other horses there. None of them stay shoed all year long, I know a lot of barns that do that though. The horses gets sprayed down everyday. Big turn out pastures. It all really depends on the nature of the owner on how abusive the training is. The horses at Saddlescrest farms are all natural Walking horses. I would know. I spent a few years there.

Again, I am sure this gentleman loves his horses, and cares well for them.

But, on the subject of weighted shoes, and this type of horse shows, I think we might just have to agree to disagree!!

Ok..... new subject!

I'm a member of FOSH as well and I just can't look at the big lick video's. I'm sure some folks think it's exciting and beautiful to watch, I just think of what usually, not always, goes into making that crawling gait.

Being a business owner, I think there's nothing wrong in making money. Harming an animal to get to the $$ and blue ribbons (NOT saying that anyone featured in these videos do this..I don't know them) is wrong. Just plain wrong! Unless a person has been really involved with tw's and seen the damage that has been done to hooves, pasturns, hocks, etc because of this crazy way of moving, you don't fully understand it.

I'd agree, there is abuse in all disciplines. It depends on the trainer, who then in turn teaches their student and they in turn pass it along to their friends..not knowing what goes into getting a horse ready for the arena.

Before I went to the tw's I was taking reining lessons. Went out to the barn for my lesson and in the next stall was another boarders horse, all tacked up and ready for her lesson in an hour. Her horse was, as I said, fully tacked but the reins were drawn as tight as possible without causing the mare to rear and tied to the saddle horn. She had to hold her head UP or get slammed in the mouth by the bit. So, when her owner came out to take her lesson..wha laaa, nice low head set. Little did she know her horse had been cranked and tied back for over an hour.

That guy is no longer in business

Teach and condition a Tennessee Walking Horse to Spanish Walk, and it will be the most beautiful Big Lick you will ever see.

I've seen a naturally gaited tw Spanish walk an it is beautiful. There's a world of difference in big lick and the Spanish walk.

It causes Them to pick their Feet up higher then What comes Natural to them.
TWH have natural gaits & they pick up their feet just not as high as some people think they should. The chains themselves may not hurt the horse but having the horse pick its feet up that high is unnatural to them & later can cause issues & possibly lameness. I would say that the chains probabl rub their legs causes irritation to the legs.
