No wonder they can't fix it.

The people in charge are the ones that need to go.

I'd love to know how many citations have been issued per year outside the officers violations.

This is a comment about the "humane shoeing of the Big Lick horses". There is NO such beast.

While the shoes and pads may have been "put on humanely" or appeared to be done so, it was a lie, more than likely the pads were concealing carpet tacks so that when weight comes down, the horse tries to spare itself the pain and grabs its hooves up as quick as can.

And that doesn't even take into consideration the golf balls, glass, and other things done in between the pads, frog and sole.

There is no such thing as a humanely trained Big Lick horse, nor will there ever be. The entire gait is false, cruel and painful.

The ONLY way it will stop, is for the judges to be fined each and EVERY time they place a horse doing this horrible step.

And Senator Bill Frist of TN? He is a Big Lick exhibitor too, or was when he was serving as Senator in DC.

There is nothing human about any of their training practices, nothing.

Those caught doing these things should get ginger put on their bottoms and made to prance at the opening of every walking horse show.
I had to do this at a saddleseat barn and I hated to do it. And I would put just a tiny bit and the trainer would always get mad and me and glob it on. I only worked there for 2 months before I just couldn't take it anymore.

I read this earlier while I was at home. Then went outside to spend time with my boy. Rascal got a bath today and was feeling awesome. I turned him loose in the yard and he went gaiting out across the fresh mown grass. It was beautiful. AND it was totally natural. No shoes, no rigs, no special crap, not a thing on him except a purple halter.
He was clean, well fed and felt great after a bath, some hoof care and some loving. I can't imagine what I would do to someone who even thought about putting my horse in a place (mental) that the big lick horses are put in on a consistent basis.
Anyone who would do these things to a horse aren't horsemen. Horsemen care about the health and well being of their animal. Stock horses, gaited, jumpers, hunters, dressage beasties, endurance buddies, any of the "show" horses or your average back yard love bug of mixed origin; it won't matter to a true horseman, They'll look out for it just the same. True horsemen won't put a ribbon, prize money, titles, prestige or glory before the well being of their animal.
Normally I'd say this is just my opinion, but in this case, it's my mind and it's a fact there. Not an opinion.
