At 11:00 p.m. tonight on Channel 6 in Knoxville there will be a segment on the TN Walker featuring the BL industry. Trailer says they went to a major show barn in Middle TN. Might be interesting.

Interesting. I have a TWH that I ride for trail and it is sad to know that this occurs. I also hate that when people find out you own a TWH they assume you live in that world

I attended a barn party at Wheelan's back about 1991-92. I knew that the BL was a "dicey" proposition from visiting a big show barn in MD (where we bought our first Walker and got my first lesson in how to, and how not to, buy a horse). What I saw that day was truly appalling. I never went back and vowed to avoid the BL world like the plague.

When the BL folks say that ending the present practices might cause great financial hardship they are quite right. One of the consequences will be a gross and dramatic de-valuation of a lot of horses. In an already badly stressed market this will cause real pain. I could make the famous "karma's a *****" observation but I won't.

I just watched the video. Seemed more like a promotional video for the Big Lick. Didn't see any examples of a natural walker for people who know nothing about TWH's.
