    Poor horses At least their owners got taken away, and the horses will probably go to a much better place. I always cringe at all the awful, cruel things people do to make their horses perform 'better' at shows.

    About time they did something about that. Justice is finally served.

    To the best of my knowledge this is the FIRST successful, criminal prosecution under the HPA. A couple were tried in the early '70s and failed on issues of proof.

    Note that this was in Chattenooga, not Middle TN. That, IMO, is not an accident.

    Still, if the Feds can get one right maybe they can get more right.

    I traveled to Shelbyville, home of the celebration, and noticed how many large horse farms were for sale.

    I thought it was the economy, but the locals tell me the feds are cracking down, and putting them out of business.

    The industry is changing. It's a great tradition, and I hope we find a way where it can continue, the horses are protected and not harmed, and the tradition can continue.

    It's a step in the right direction.
