Petition to End Soring

Our organization is committed to ending the horrible abusive practice called soring. Congress enacted the Horse Protection Act in 1970 - however, under funded the enforcement of this law.

Today - the practice is still as widespread as it was in 1970. For information about this - we refer you to (friends of sound horses)

we have a petition at

please help us - this practice has to stop & stop NOW.

THank you!

May our spirits always gently and humanely lead us forward

I know it's a widespread problem (definitely not arguing with you there), but I believe the government may be ahead of you:

The big Walking Horse Celebration is coming up the later part of August. It will be interesting to see what happens there...

Signed myself too. Don't agree with this type of "Showing"
The natural gaited horse is such a beautiful horse without all the exaggerated enhancements to gait into a moving deformed monster.

If you ever watch the "big lick" horses. They looks so unnatural, unbalanced, and weak in the hindends. It's almost like the hip displacia in dogs the way that they move. Very sad.
