LEWISBURG, TN – TWHBEA Sr. VP Walt Chism continued his stream of consciousness reverie today with more rambling internet commentary.
From: Rick Chovan, TWHBEA Director, Pennsylvania
To: Walt Chism, TWHBEA Sr. VP
“Walt is at it again”.
From: Walt Chism, TWHBEA Sr. VP

“I guess. But I don’t mess around in Canadian politics and he shouldn’t mess around in ours.
Here’s the jest f the issue. If you are opposed to soring and support a show horse, you’re for Blalkburn’s bill. If you’re against soring and the show horse, you support the Whittfield bill.
I never bought into the argument that Whittfeld bill was to eliminate soring. Soring was an excuse and vehicle to eliminate the show ring. And it has always been my opinion that if you eliminate the show ring you will eliminate the horse, any horse, no matter the breed.”
Mr. Chism’s words: “If you are opposed to soring and support a show horse, you’re for Blalkburn’s bill”
Mr. Chism speaks like a true addict, because his former vet Dr. John Haffner has told him:
Sadly, at an advanced age, Walt Chism is just another sore Big Lick addict who is in denial.
- THE “BIG LICK” ADDICTION
Mr. Chism knows, just like his Executive Committee Colleague Ford Gates said, that you can’t admit “fixing” a horse, so he doesn’t. But Mr. Chism knows you can’t have the Big Lick without sore.

TWHBEA President Steve Smith knows it, too.
STEVE SMITH UP ON MISS WALKING MIRACLE, MULTI WORLD GRAND CHAMPION MARE
Steve Smith has ridden sore horses.
Both Steve Smith and Walt Chism know all about soring horses.
And they both fear the PAST ACT because it will take their addiction away from them.
Having said that, entertaining the world of “Chism Think”, Mr. Chism says he believes that there is a vast conspiracy to “eliminate the show ring” whatever that means.
When Mr. Chism refers to a “Show Horse” – what he is actually referring to is the sore Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horse which the public has rejected, and to which he is still addicted.
CELEBRATION ATTENDANCE 2004 – 2013
Mr.Chism and Mr. Smith can’t accept the reality that the era of the sore Big Lick show horse is over. Actually, Mr. Chism DID accept it for himself when he sold all his Tennessee Walking Horses when the ABC Nightline video with Jackie McConnell’s abuse aired.
Its ironic that Mr.Chism, who dispersed his breeding stock, is now comfortable pontificating his theories on why persons supporting the PAST ACT to those who are still trying to make a go of it with Sound Tennessee Walking Horses,
Chism loses all credibility when he says, “Do as I say, not as I do”.
Then Mr. Chism continued: “If you eliminate the show ring you will eliminate the horse, any horse, no matter the breed.”
Apparently Mr. Chism cannot grasp the concept these beautiful sound horses can go both ways of the ring, and be judged, and people can attend,and enjoy what they see, and the best ones of these can sell for good money.
