    Maybe they should start jailing the judges, too as conspirators.

    They need to clean house. I'm tired of seeing people with HPA violations get award after award. Though presently we're having an issue with the swab tests being done (false positives, it has been determined that trace amounts of something as simple as aftershave on the inspector's hands is capable of triggering a positive response in the test) so it's going to be really hard to determine who is actually in the wrong until they refine the swab test or decide to ditch it all together for something more reliable. Personally, I like thermography because heat and inflammation can't be hidden.

    Any form of showing that relies on a horse wearing huge elevated platforms on its hooves should be banned. The natural action of the horse is the most beautiful thing and altering it to such an extent as they do with these poor animals is an abomination. If anyone thinks its no uncomfortable then they should try running around a track in trainers and then in stilleto heels or platform soles and see the difference.

    Agreed. YOU (who think that this is ethical) should be try walking around in platform heels with chains around your ankle for 8 hrs/day/for a month. You wouldn't wish this on any animal if you did.
    TWH's were bred for comfort and don't need the exaggerated movements to carry you that way.

    The judge who gave the 3 the slap on the wrist, needs to receive thousands of letters in protest to how he sentenced these men. Don't you people vote your judges in? If so you can also not re-elect him. Get a letter writing campaign going. Just a few sentences 1. You protest his decision in the sentencing of xxxx (the names of the 3) and 2. You will not vote for him when his term is up. In order to gain an inch, politically, you have to move mountains.

    GOOD NEWS - McConnell got a life time ban from Celebration. Anything to do with McConnell will be removed, even from Hall of Fame. Any horse in training with him will be banned. McConnell can't even step foot on the grounds during Celebration. I feel confident that losing a major sponsor had a lot to do with the director's decision but the main thing is, at least they had to quit turning a blind eye.

    It doesnt matter, they still have the show, and they still have the point system that still rewards soring. The director and judges are just as guilty.

    Animal Rescue Site Petition to Stop Horse Soring

    There is a petition against soring at the Animal Rescue Site requesting signatures, I realize petitions are not always highly effective but if well publicized enough they may be of some help. Here is the link for anyone interested if they would like to sign and forward it:

    This practice wont stop until show judges, and all officers and directors of the TWHBEA are prosecuted as accessories.
