the TWH industry has done a tremendous job of cleaning things up.
yeah, it took the USDA's involvment but it is happening........which leads me to this question......why is the USDA singling out only the "performance" end of the breed when there are people out there that "claim" to train a sound horse......swear to it actually.....and somehow end up getting suspended from their own "sound horse" group?
and why are the USDA not going after the trainers/owners/riders of ALL!!!! the other breeds that abuse their horses for the sake of a trophy, ribbon or money in the ring or on the course.
anyone who has been in the horse biz a little while knows what i am talking about and could probably list the known abuses by the breed.
now that the USDA has done its job with the walkers, its time to work on some of the other breeds..........
