There are a couple organizations that are having shows and ban unnatural shoeing and arn't hypocrites. Maybe seek out and support those shows.

TWHBEA isn't the only game in town. I went to a NWHA show just a couple of weeks ago (as a spectator). Showing really isn't my "thing," but at least NWHA doesn't even offer Big Lick classes and it was a relaxing way to spend a few hours on a Saturday.

I can't say I agreed with the judge on every placement. . .the horses that seemed to move naturally and comfortably were not placing as well as the ones that looked "stiff."

Having said all that. . .there is nothing "wrong" or "bad" about showing Tennessee Walkers. The breed NEEDS flat-shod, naturally talented horses out there in the spotlight so that people can see what the breed is MEANT to do, and that true gait doesn't come from pads, chains, chemicals, or pain.
kstinson and arrowsaway like this.

Thats what I am saying..He is looking tons better after we got him where he needs to be boarding wise.Now he is in training to help with his pacing issues.But most of that will be fixed with his toe growth I think..here is a video of the trainer on him yesterday.Two weeks ago he looked nothing like this.he looked awful. Trotting all over head was all over.

He has shoes on now but a QH farrier cut all his toe off so the had to reset the angle and put some light shod on.But I would like a tad more animation in the front.He still paces a little and I hate that.So I was thinking of adding just a little heavier in the front and leaving the back

Joe, your horse is a TWH, right? Isn't just owning one promoting the breed? I like TWH's and Joe, I like your horse. Even if I do ride an Arab.

Some of us can't imagine why you would have a good horse just to ride in circles inside a fenced ring.

Diegosmom, he looks SO much better! :)
