I thought this was pretty cool

Walking Horses Needed for Nashville/Metro Mounted Patrol Unit

Our S.O.P. States that we only use Tennessee Walking horses and some of our restrictions are that the horse be between 4 and 8 years of age when we obtain them and be between 15.2 * 17 hands tall. We dont have a color restriction but we do know that the lighter color horses are harder to keep clean and are harder hit by flies and that could affect a decision. When we go to look at a horse that the owner is interested in donating to the police dept., if we feel the horse is worth further consideration we explain to the owner that we will take the horse for a 60 day trial period (there is a form that the owner is requested to sign along with a representative of the Mounted Unit for this 60 day trial) and that at the end of the 60 days that if we feel the horse does not have the characteristics that we are looking for, that we will return the horse to the owner. If, on the other hand we feel that this horse has the potential to be a police horse we will request that the owner sign the donation papers and then this document will go before the Metro Council to be voted on whether to except or reject this donation. If Ive been vague in any way please contact me at (615) 830-6645 or (615) 834-8545

TWHBEA Calls For Greater Emphasis on Elimination of Soring


Lewisburg, TN -This is a very tumultuous time in our great industry. We have valid concerns about mandatory penalties, decertification of HIO's and the possible elimination of pads and action devices. Other equine breeds are trying to distance themselves from us and our problems.

President Marty Irby reminds everyone that the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association (TWHBEA) is committed to the elimination of soring and urges all industry entities to focus on this issue. Efforts are encouraged by TWHBEA to form initiatives that reward those who do not engage in this despicable practice. Programs that recognize and promote the natural abilities of our talented horse should be utilized.

It is not enough that we punish those that sore, we must also encourage and reward those that respect and train in a way that ensures the future and longevity of the breed.

Since when does barbaric abusive practices administered by convicted animal abusers constitute, "assure its general welfare". Screw those hypocrites.
Guess the TWBEA directors are trying to suck up to the cops to maybe get a few of them to turn the other way about criminal animal abuse practices.

While I agree with you Joe I'm going to hold out hope that the TWHBEA has seen the light, just not going to hold my breath.

The waxing and waning of the TWHBEA has been going on since about 1956.

Every time I see this "we've finally come to Jesus" type of a ads I'm reminded of Bullwinkle the Moose's "hat gag":

He's a slight modification with a video:


The TWHBEA is still trying to pull rabbits out of hats instead of addressing the fundamental issues. It didn't work well for Bullwinkle and it won't work for the Basin crowd, either.

I am just impressed that they now have a horse on the main page that looks to be natural.

The last time I was on their page (probably a month or so ago) they had one of the high stepping ones with the huge "shoes" which just made me scratch my head and ask what they're really promoting? Natural gaits or "fancy" problems

TWHBEA wouldn't do the right thing if they had a gun to their head.

I truly do no know much about the registry itself, I do know it's an old registry and that old ways get passed down. Back in 1935, cruelty wasn't seen as the way it is today and I really have a feeling that the TWHBEA is sort of a good ol' boy club(I really hope I'm wrong) If that's the case it won't be easy getting rules to protect these animals. I remember once as a kid in eastern KY a guy on the back of a lovely TWH, trying to run the crap out of him. I noticed he looked like he wasn't happy, tried to stop a couple of times, we passed him (we were in a car) I turned to look I guess he thought we were far enough away. What happened next haunts me to this day, he took a chain and beat that horse into submission. I tried to open the door as we were going down the road dad stopped me said he couldn't risk getting shot with me in the car. I was heartbroken.

I'm not getting in on this hot-button topic but:

I grew up in the heart of Amish country. They treated their plow horses with the highest reverence.

The buggy horses were another matter.

The abominable manner in which many of them treated their buggy horses would make folks forget about TWHBEA's monetary and politically driven sins for quite awhile.
