    Actually Rosie, there is Welcome to Friends Of Sound Horses I've been a member for about 6yrs and I've seen their influence in the BL world. A good group of people that are dedicated and driven. A small contribution and it comes with a nice (I think quarterly) small magazine that has good articles in it. Their publication has grown in size and it's nice to see that they're making a difference. It's not a radical group, which I appreciate. Take a peek around their web site :)

    Defiantly not for soring. Its like saying 'I'm for animal abuse!'

    I'm also not for Big Lick either. Its disgusting and needs to stop.

    I agree with you about how people will do anything to fit the judge's opinon of what is pretty or correct, but I don't see anything wrong with showing if you're just there to have fun with your horse, and have fun with him, and not just to win. I can't stand when people do somehting unnatural to a horse and say "That's what you have to do/ what it has to be like in showing'. But showing is fine to me if you're there, not just for you to win, but for your horse to win as well. You don't want your horse just to be used or an object in your sucess. Shows can be fun if people weren't trying so hard to make their horse unnaturally moing to fit the judges standards. That's why I hate most Western Pleasure classes. The reason I say most is because I've seen it done without going so slow that the horse looks lame. Its one thing to have a nice, relaxed canter, but you don't want one that's broken.

    they also have a very nice educational piece for us non-gaited folks which interesting to me I found to be a rather unfriendly feat on this forum.
    Seems like a great organization!

    Soring, big lick, all that.... totally disgusting. The TWH is a gorgeous horse in its NATURAL state, and they should remain that way. The things they do to TWH horses (and Saddlebreds too for that matter) is abusive, it shouldn't be tolerated, it's gone on for way too long.

    Saddlebreds have plenty of abuses, but spring is not one of them. Said from my experience training, showing, breeding them and living in the industry my whole life. Just putting that in there.

    We came home from a circus act when my daughter was in the third grade. Oh how she loved the circus. It was the last one we were to ever attend. She came home...turned on the tv and there was a show about the abuse of circus animals. She has never attended another circus and has written several reports on her stance. Now a Junior in high school, I am still so very proud of her continued stance and how she sticks up for it. She was so very young when she made up her mind about circuses and it has never wavered..Even when she was offered a job selling cotton cotton she turned it down.

    Sorry for the book but I just wanted to share!!!
