THETA, TN – Radar says there may be coons in Canada, but we’re not going up there to hunt them. Apparently, there are also some SORE Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horses up there, too.
Featured Sunday night throughout Canada was the marvelously popular show “HEARTLAND – WALKING TALL”. This week’s episode featured a sored Tennessee Walking Horse being rescued from its Big Lick Trainers.
TWHBEA officials Steve Chism and Walt Smith need to ask themselves – just how are you going to market this “All Disciplines” bull hockey which includes a SORE Big Lick Horse that the entire world is lined up against?
The Poll of the TWHBEA members had 100% of the International TWHBEA members voting “YES” for passage of the PAST Act.
President Steve Smith has an Executive Committee filled with people who have HPA Citations for SORING. Smith has one himself that he couldn’t remember when he filled out the questionnaire to run for TWHBEA office.

The HPA poster child is Ford Gates, VP Performance Horse who said:
Does Ford Gates need his privileges at TWHBA suspended for violating the Code of Conduct, 21.03 based on his Statement regarding SORING?
“TWHBEA Code of Conduct Standards”
Code of Conduct
“No person shall knowingly “¦ engage in any practice which has the effect of corrupting the integrity of the Association “¦ or otherwise engage in an unethical practice in any situation involving a Tennessee Walking Horse or any matter in which this Association has an interest.”
Heckuva way to promote the Tennessee Walking Horse, wouldn’t you say?
