    You might just want to do a search here for that. We have had several discussions about this, after news videos came out in the spring and folks went to jail for abuse. You should be able to get your answer there. Or-Google. That works too.

    The judges, organizers, directors, officers, of the entire TWHBEA, need to be tested and disqualified. That organization is rotten to the core.

    Support the National walking horse association. No big lick, no soring, no stacked shoes, and most importantly no directors, judges, or other officers that have been cited for animal cruelty violations.

    Soring is where they use chemicals, devices to make the horses feet sore so that they pick them up higher than normal to achieve the big lick.

    Im against any types of animal abuse but I think they are going to take the testing too far and could ultimately penalize legitimate trainers. They have a 1 Part Per Million Rule. Anything could possibly trigger a violation. Fly Sprays, Shampoos, Hoove Polish etc. There are so many combination of chemicals in benign everyday products that could possibly trigger a False Positive.

    Better to do something than the nothing they have been doing over the years. It has gone so far that some of these folks do not even think it is wrong anymore.

    100% agreed, Joe. I know there are multiple opinions and "sides to every issue".
    In this case, basing my opinions on what I consider to be a well-researched, non-emotionally based viewpoint, my ultimate conclusion is unalterable on my part.

    Big Lick/related forms of showing which require similar physiological treatments upon horses bodies, benefit horsepersons and certainly horses not at all--(other than the EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF MONIES earned by "breeders" and "trainers" involved in this discipline)...from my research I understand a LOT OF MONEY IS AT STAKE.

    Thus, it's not likely to be going ANYWHERE soon. Very saddening and disheartening.

    Rather than us reinventing the wheel here, why don't you actually try to educate yourself..there is LOTS of info out there, including the video that started this discussion in full force back in March. Not to sound rude, but really.
