Why would budweiser pull out of sponsorship? People going to start saying theyre soring the clydesdales if they don't? Lol. There is no abuse in the show- it aint been shown yet, lol.
I never said EVERY padded walker is sored. However, this show has classes for exhibiting the Big Lick. If the show would just remove those classes I think it would do a world of good. And as for all the offenders going to jail. You are wrong. There is a repeat offender who is acting as a judge at this year's celebration.
There is no such thing as 'big lick class'. There not removing the twh wgc classes from the celebration any time soon- that's the money making classes people come from all over the world to see and spend lot of money in shelbyville too.. whos the judge?
Well, thank you ever so for being so respectful.
you're welcome- I like to keep it respectful.
If Big Lick is not such a big deal then hopefully they will do away with it. If they are supposed to be celebrating the Tennessee Walker perhaps they could celebrate what is natural about it, rather than praise and honor those who do whatever it takes to get that unnatural gait from their horses. Just a thought. Enjoy your beer.
They wont- its the big money generator for the city- it is a celebration the whole town celebrates the walking horse- they use the money earned from the people that come to see the paded walkers win wgc to fix up the city and donate a lot of the proceedings to charities in the city too.
You're looking at it in the wrong light-- it aint about hurting horses those people get jailed and no one wants them to touch their show horses! You say the word 'sore' in shelbyville.. dare ya, lol.
Thanks I will enjoy quite a few and ride in the walking horse wgc show too.
Forgot to tell you there is other classes than just the padded classes- there is natural classes light shod classes halter classes country pleasure classes etcetra -- its the twhbea celebration show theyve got it all not just 'big lick'
