Inman assigned Tyler Thomas, son of Shelbyville Fire Chief Mark Thomas to shadow TWHBEA director Keith Dane’s every move on the Celebration grounds Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

Tennessean reporter Heidi Hall was also banned from taking a photograph of a horse being swabbed. Others were also stopped from taking a picture. One of the official in a belligerent angry flaring tone with a raised voice said, “NO PHOTOGRAPHS”.

CELEBRATION CEO MIKE IN DISCUSSING MATTERS WITH RACHEL CEZAR, DVM – NATIONAL HORSE PROTECTION COORDINATOR ON BIG STAKE NIGHT

What in the world do they have to hide and what are they afraid of?

It’s rumored that Inman will be one and done.

But that makes lots of sense because “Herr” Howard’s modus operandi is to always have someone to blame things on. Mike appears to figuratively be “dead man walking” where this Celebration CEO job is concerned.

Nephew Eugene witnessed some things last Saturday night when Inman confronted USDA National Horse Protection Coordinator Rachel Cezar, DVM expressing his displeasure about “Honors being turned down by USDA Vet due to scars on both front feet and sensitive sore in one foot.

To his credit, APHIS Deputy Administrator Chester Gipson allowed Dr. Cezar to do her job, and her staff did their job in an exemplary manner the entire 10 days, and especially on Friday night when the SHOW HIO DQPS went 0 for 138 Horses checked with no HPA violations.

The USDA Vets found 11 HPA violations.

The Celebration needs to be fun again.

Fun isn’t having Americans being tailed by Security operatives or prohibiting a media person or anyone from the public for matter from taking a picture of horse being swabbed before entering the inspection area.

Makes you wonder what they are trying to hide or what has them so afraid.

  1. Because Keith Dane is such a scary guy…not! But I’m sure the extra security was just for his protection, right?

  2. YOU are so RIGHT, RGB. The Celebration hasn’t really been “fun” for about 50 years. But now the atmosphere sounds down right HOSTILE, unless you support the Sore Lick.

    Time to ban ALL the stacks, chains and hoof bands as well as shoes that are SO HEAVY they need hoof bands to stay on. Also time to get rid of the cable an gag bits, as well as the TEN inch shanks on bits..

    • The Celebration has been “fun” for a lot of those 50 years because people reunite and come together annually to enjoy and celebrate the Tennessee Walking Horse. But it lost its way due to greed and money, staying with a paradigm while society’s values and awareness changed, and the showing of the Tennessee Walking Horse didn’t change with it. So many parallels to the Civil Rights movement – but change, it’s gonna come. It’s time for the Tennessee Walking Horse to return to its roots

      • You are so right. And remember how hateful and violent the segregationists were? They were entrenched in the paradigm. They didn’t come around easily, but come around they did.

  3. Great coverage of the Celebration so the rest of the world can understand what is happening. Thank you.

  4. I can see where publicizing the inspection process would throw a monkey wrench into all the publicity the TWHBEA is throwing at the Performance Horse. When the TWHBEA publishes pictures of a couple kids on ponies they want all the parents in the world to say, I want Lil’ Bubba to look just like that. Nobody gets to see what the ponies those two kids were riding went through just to show. This whole mess stinks of what can my money buy and if I can’t buy it I’ll eliminate it

  5. Evil reigns at the TWHNC. Gestapo is right. Marty Irby is in hiding due to death threats. Keith Dane is being stalked. It’s the BL people who have forced all these rules to be created in the first place. As stated earlier, much like the Civil Rights Movement, Animal Rights probably will have its own murders. It already has its own laws and officers.

  6. That deputy should be busy busy busy writing felony animal abuse cases. He has a hot bed of them right in front of his nose.

  7. You know, people don’t think about who’s to blame for most of the expense of showing, it’s the BL faction. Outlaying areas, where people have to drive hundreds of miles to show, can’t afford to put on a show, people can’t afford to attend them and they probably wouldn’t know how to sore a horse. BL must go, there’s no other way to back some normalcy to our Walking Horses.

  8. So I am sad today in the North End today

    My interpretation of the night of the crowing of the WGC “Show Horse” in no way should be interpreted as the WGC of the TWH.

    We witnessed trainer’s showing sparingly and sticking their amateurs out there being able to rest assured they would not get dinged if one of those failed. Only the owner and exhibitor would take the heat. Were there not that many great horses for the trainer’s to show?

    even though there were some pleasure classes, the idiots judging were looking for one thing, the biggest lick, even in trail pleasure! We all know that the best Trail pleasure, lite shod, and park pleasure horses were not in attendance last night. Who want s to be judged by an idiot who thinks a pleasure horse is supposed to be a watered down version of the big lick padded horse.

    It’s a good thing for the celebration the pleasure horses were there, helped keep the “compliance rate” high. Mikey is touting a successful 2013 Celebration. He never took off his rose colored glasses!

    poor Bobby Sands tried hard to spew the celebration “bought and paid for” rhetoric but we all know who signed his paycheck, so yes bobby, you get a pass!

    The hi-lite of the last night of the celebration was the trivia and the speed racking horse exhibition. The low spot is knowing that a wonderful memory for many is taking a nose dive into the pavement.

    What the lickers say is “today, we have a much better horse” would make the founders shiver. I would say the first thing you should be looking to breed out is this high hindquarter and low withers which requires pads to provide the proper conformation lines. It was really a sad thing to see those judges himming and hawing on the WGC candidates as every one in the group except El Nino would never make it in a real horse conformation judging class. They could not even compete with the Model Horses exhibited at the celebration, What the Heck is that, the model of the breed is not the model of the breed? Just a pretty horse?

      • All I can say is buyer beware, when the pads and chains come off, there will be some low dollar high dollar horses hitting the market. If it cannot running walk, rack, or saddle with flat feet, pass it by unless you want a bumpy ride!
