It's about TIME!!! Now that there has been a legal precedant set (by this case), it will become easier to prosecute this type of abuse.

That's positive news! I'm with Joe, now they need to prosecute those who create the need for such a sick practice.

Good news, but I don't like the way the article implies that the entire gaited horse industry is like this.

The entire gaited show world is. Why I wont have anything to do with it.
"Oh we are against soring"
'oh lets create a scoring system that specifically rewards it."
Bunch of d@#mn hypocrites.

I think I am going to start a sport that gives cash prizes to people that have horses that walk on three legs, but I am against wacking them in the fourth leg with a baseball bat.

Not the entire gaited horse industry, but the big lick TWH, yes. Normally I am against exaggeration but after watching how grotesque and unnatural it is to turn the normally quiet and lovely TWH walk into the monstrosity we see, I truly do not believe you can achieve that horrific gait without soring. One of the prosecuted makes mention of it and we hear it over and over again. The entire industry needs to be shot straight down the drain. I'm not referring to flat shod showing (and even THEN you sometimes hear of soring), but this "big lick" industry is an effing joke.

FINALLY!! I'm all for NATURALLY gaited horses doing what they were BORN to do, but chemically and/or mechanically forcing them to do it is just plain WRONG. I'm sure you've seen the "Big Lick" horses...that basically look like they sitting down on their hocks and dragged themselves along...ugh to me that's just ridiculous, nothing pretty about it!
