AQHA ISSUES PRESS RELEASE REGARDING ALLEGED ABUSE AT REICHERT

AQHA was made aware of an alleged case of animal abuse that took place at the Reichert Celebration. The Association has obtained a copy of the police report and is working with stewards who were at the event to obtain their reports and photos of the horse in question. Because the Reichert Celebration is a dual approved event, the National Snaffle Bit Association also has been in contact with AQHA to discuss the situation and address the matter as alliance partners.

As with any reported case of animal abuse, AQHA takes this matter seriously and will proceed accordingly and as swiftly as possible once the Association has received and reviewed all the necessary documentation. AQHA appreciates the immediate action show management and officials with the Reichert took to protect the horse.

GoHorseShow.com will keep our readers posted on further developments.

You want to know what happened? Allegedly, the horse had rowel gauges 2" deep and she was trying to cover them up by gluing fake animal hair/hide to them. Sickening.

update of incident::wink:
Equine Chronicle AQHA and NSBA Temporarily Suspend Shirley Roth Pending Disciplinary Hearing Regarding Alleged Animal Cruelty Incident

Hope something becomes at the hearing & she is permanently suspended!!

fkcb1988 09-22-2012 09:49 PM

Poor guy! Hope more happens then just a suspension!

I say Roth's punishment is to be ignored after someone gouges her flanks with the same spurs as she hurt that poor horse with.
