More soring indictments in the gaited horse world
These trainers are about as prone to not learn their lessons as certain NASCAR crew chiefs I could name, unfortunately.
As noted in the story, this comes on the heels of a trio of trainers being sentenced in another high-profile soring prosecution: The Horse | Trio Sentenced in Horse Soring Case
Soring is abuse. It needs to stop.
It is the judges who should carry the blame. It takes only one prestigious judge to allow something then they others follow suit. The walker was bred to be a driving horse that was comfortable to ride for many hours. Big Lick has nothing to do with this. It's all about idiot judges and any judge who will judge Big Lick is an idiot. There is no need for it. That is how to get rid of it - ban the judging of it then the pressure won't be on the competitors to win at all costs.
Nobody is forcing competitors to do it, DOnt compete, dont support TWHBEA, call them out for the hypocrites they are. Stop giving them money, stop going to the shows, stop buying products from companies that sponsor the shows. Make sure you tell the companies you wont buy their products and why.
I own padded horses. I don't believe for a moment that pads are abusive in and of themselves but what Jackie and others like him are doing is atrocious. No horse should be forced to suffer like that for any reason. Maybe if somebody would do that stuff to them they'd finally learn their lesson.
Pepsi pulled their sponsership this morning ..
Jackie has reached an apparent plea aggreement to plead guilty to one charge of conspiracy to break the **** rules .. for the other 50 something charges to be dropped ...
I need a beer.
Oh, and he can still train horses .. just only the ones that he OWNS .. until they go to trial ..
THAT'll teach him .. *sigh*
Nothing like a good ol' slap to the wrist to teach them! *sigh*
They should at least cross tie him ... go get the bat ...
Oooooooooooooooooooops .. I'm having bad thoughts again ...
*slinking away to my prayer closet*
