That would be the ridiculous caricature of a horse that the TWHBEA promotes. Ever heard of soring? That's where it started. The blatant abuse that goes on in that industry is SHOCKING.
This video is several years old, but the industry is not much better today. At their World show a few years ago, over half of the competitors in the last class (the big one) were disqualified because of violations of the Horse Protection Act. Last year's show had over 400 violations.
Sorry, I don't want to go off topic. Google "big lick tennessee walking horse" if you want to know more.
