"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

Hear Pamela Reband speak at the 2009 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 friendsofsoundhorses.org/horseletter
