AAWHA   –WALK ON WASHINGTONRally To “PASS THE PAST ACT”


WASHINGTON, DC   ““ A nationwide grassroots rally – “WALK ON WASHINGTON” ““
will take place at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 18, 2014 in front of the U. S. Capitol Reflecting Pool on 3rd Street SW on Union Square.   Volunteers from all across America will gather to urge passage of the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act) to end soring of Tennessee Walking Horses.   The event is being sponsored by a group of concerned citizens against soring known as the All American Walking Horse Alliance.

AAWHA spokesperson Jeannie McGuire of Unionville, Virginia said,  “We hope to bring public attention and legislative action to this bipartisan legislation. Endorsements have been received by the American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Association of Equine Practitioners, the United States Equestrian Federation and the American Horse Council.” Other animal welfare organizations including the ASPCA and The Humane Society Of The United States support the bill.

The “WALK ON WASHINGTON” rally to   “Pass The PAST ACT”  will feature a parade of Sound Tennessee Walking Horses, a number of which are coming from U. S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) district.
