Cori, Rio, Flame  and  Howie  are natural gaited sound Tennessee Walking Horses.

They will perform for Congressman Cantor and other important people  at the “WALK ON WASHINGTON” in support of “PASSING THE PAST ACT”.

Supporting them will be a grassroots group of volunteers from all across the country who call themselves the ALL AMERICAN WALKING HORSE ALLIANCE.

The “WALK ON WASHINGTON” all started one morning when Jeannie McGuire of Unionville, Virginia  was sitting at her kitchen table.  She was concerned that the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses had gone on for most of her life with no end in sight.

She knew a new law had been  introduced in the U. S. House of Representatives by a courageous Congressman Ed Whitfield (R-KY)  to clean up the abuse of Tennessee Walking Horses.  It was called the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).   Its purpose was to remove the pads and chains from Tennessee Walking Horses to stop the soring which had plagued the breed for decades.

Jeannie decided to so something about what was hurting the horses. She reached out to some dedicated friends who shared her views.  They formed a group naming it “All American Walking Horse Alliance” and they planned an event “WALK ON WASHINGTON”.

A grassroots movement was born, and Jeannie and her friends worked to make it happen.

It IS happening at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday,  June 18, 2014 in front of the U. S. Capitol.
