Same reason every breed has abusive assholes who want to get a better look in the showring, it's in every breed every show. It has less to do with the Tennessee Walker and more to do with human nature of people wanting to be better ten Joe Moe down the road. I agree this person had to of been a troll, I'm tired of people looking at TWH owners like monsters, I get the double take when I mention I am getting one for my next horse.
