That was just sick. Note what Jenna Jackson said, "it becomes an addiction...I couldn't believe the monster I had become..." The big lick has been going on since the 50's, which is nearly sixty years. We now have people who have grown up in the industry and honestly see nothing wrong with what they are doing; they know no other way of training and the big lick looks normal to them.
The big lick/pads just needs to stop, all of it. The TWH is a shadow of its former self, the gait has been long ago bred out and now nearly every TWH paces/step paces. It's a rare Walker who has a natural walk.
Take a look at this video from 1949. It's a completely different gait than we see now, even on natural walkers. There's none of the swingy pace that the breeders want these days.
