    I knew Tenn walkers were apt to be abused to obtain that big lick gait but even before I knew about it, I never liked that gait. Living in Ky, every horse show has the section for the Big lickers and I would leave or go to the snack bar or something before they began showing that division. I have always hated the way the horses looked when they walked like that. So grotesque and deformed looking. I have been wanting to get it outlawed, not only for the abuse that does with it, but the whole 'big lick' gait period. It's just not natural for those horses to do that...

    Yes, I do not see the fun in this gait. You can see the fear of the horses without a problem. I do not understand that people that do understand horses, want to see this abuse (according to me everyone can see the abuse).

    These people really see nothing wrong with this crap? Seriously? Nothing is wrong with having your horse wearing those stupid things? I guess one can make all kinds of excuses for their actions.
    I feel sick now...

    Me too and I find is most sickening that people can say "I see nothing wrong with it." Really? How can you not see anything wrong with the shoes that have 3 pounds of nails in them? How is there nothing wrong with shoes that make a horse move in such an unnatural way?

    People tend to lump Saddlebred's in with Tennessee walkers saying their gait is unnatural too but... it isn't anything like these poor horses. Saddlebreds out in the pasture will trot up with their legs but they are doing a "natural gait" vs. these poor critters that look like they have all they can do to stay on their feet. I once saw a video of a Big Lick show where not one but 3 horse went down in the class because they were in so much pain they couldn't even stand anymore regardless of the whips cracking them on the side, neck and butt. They just couldn't take another step but people can't see anything wrong with it?

    I cried. This is absolutely horrible! I don't understand how anyone could do something like that and keep doing it without a care of how the animal feels, and the pain they go through.

    Yeah... Their legs literally give out.. They're bred, born, made to train, made to wear harsh things, made to show, made to go through pain, then they develop a lot of issues and end up being put down... and the ones that aren't are usually bred 24/7.... I thought we made machines for our own pleasures... Not animals
