ASBs get off easy when it comes to soring, because you cannot sore them. Chains are not soring. Tail sets are not soring. Pads are not soring.
Soring is causing severe pain to the horse's foot and lower leg to enhance the gait.
Simply put, a saddlebred cannot trot high with sore feet. Cannot, and won't. Through my personal experience working with, watching, training, showing, and living the breed, I can tell you with certainty, that a Saddlebred with sore feet loses all motion. There are other abuses in the breed, but soring is not on of them.
Saddlebreds are bred for that kind of motion, whereas the TWH is not.
