Persuasion painted by E:Mc2

"Desert Myst"


Model horse hobby legends Pamala Hutton and Carol Floyd (E:Mc2) chose my sculpture Persuasion to paint in collaboration after seeing her on my website. The result was "Desert Myst".


Desert Myst was auctioned on Ebay and sold for a record breaking price. She was E:Mc2's highest selling model horse at the time and maybe their highest selling horse to date, selling for more than twice what their work had sold for previously.


Pamala bought a second Persuasion saying she never painted the same model twice, but for Persuasion she made an exception.

Capturing the Spirit of Horses in Art


Horse sculpture is my passion. Figures of horses have always filled my imagination. I strive to portray the horse as he is in my sculptures, beautiful, sensitive and powerful. Horses are intelligent and feeling beings. As a sculptor I observe the anatomy, movement and expressions of horses as well as their unique qualities that make each horse an individual.

"Hundreds of trainers withdrew their horses from competition at a major Tennessee Walking Horse show last weekend after USDA inspectors arrived on the scene to examine horses for violations of the Horse Protection Act."


"In 1998, The Tennessean published several articles on the walking horse industry. They interviewed defectors from the world of soring and the big lick. Pamela Reband, a former TWHBEA director, admitted in print to "sanctioning torture for 30 years." -From the article Sore Winners by Andrew Lang, DVM

What is soring?

Sound Horse Conference


Facts on the industry

Here are a couple facts from the above link:


Of the 54 Riders Cup Top Trainers named by the Walking Horse Report in 2007 ONLY 4 had NO SORING VIOLATIONS. The rest shared a total of 204 violations.



There were 15 HPA suspensions between the 13 honorees recently inducted into the Walking Horse Hall of Fame. One honoree had 6 suspensions. One honoree who had no suspensions was the organist.



"Matte Pulle of the Nashville Scene” in the October 29, 2003 edition, reports of an interview with a long time TWH trainer that ...  The USDA, which loosely monitors the industry, continues to cite successful trainers for soring-related infractions, including Bill Bobo, who won this year's World Grand Championship at the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration. Rhoads says that he recently walked into a barn of walking horses and saw 30 of them lying on the ground--a sure sign that they were in too much pain from the abuse to stand up.” - from
