Pass the PAST Act = End Soring

The Horse Protection Act was passed in 1970 to end a hideously abusive training practice called  soring“”the intentional infliction of pain to horses’ feet and legs to produce an exaggerated gait known as the “Big Lick.” But over 40 years later, many Tennessee Walking Horses, known for their distinctive smooth ride and willing natures, still suffer unthinkable treatment for the sake of ribbons and prizes at shows.

This Thunderclap campaign will tell Congress to pass a bill, the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 1518/S. 1406 — to end the abuse.

The PAST Act will amend the Horse Protection Act to end the industry’s failed system of self-policing, ban the use of devices implicated in the practice of soring, strengthen penalties, and make other reforms needed to finally end this torture.

This legislation already has the bipartisan support of more than 50 Senate co-sponsors and more than 260 House co-sponsors.   The  American Horse Council, the  American Association of Equine Practitioners, the  American Veterinary Medical Association, and every state’s veterinary medical association have  all endorsed the bill: now it’s your turn.

Join our Thunderclap to share the message and stand for horses.

OPPOSE PAST ACT HR1518/S1406

(NOTE: THE HORSE ABOVE “CASH FOR KEEPS”     RECEIVED A HORSE PROTECTION ACT VIOLATION TICKET IN 1998 WHLE UNDER TRAINER SAMMY DAY – THE PICTURE ON THE LEFT WAS THE YEAR 2000)

HSUS is seeking to legislate the type of shoes 3 breeds of horses can wear.   It is clearly an effort to further their animal right’s position and opens the door for all horse shoes for all breeds being legislated.   HSUS would have you believe it is because of “rampant” abuse that this legislation is needed.   The 3 industries are 96.7% compliant with the federal law (higher compliance than the beef intended for human consumption).

Stop HSUS and let congress know that legislating horse shoes shouldn’t even be a consideration.

OPPOSE HR1518/S1406.

The Lickers are desperately trying to ignore the fact that the:

  • AMERICAN VETERINARY MEDICAL ASSOCIATION
  • AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF EQUINE PRACTITIONERS
  • AMERICAN HORSE COUNCIL

have thrown their considerable weight behind the PAST ACT, and the Lickers continually tilt at the Humane Society windmill.
