Withdrawing sponsorship from horse event shows integrity

Regions Bank deserves congratulations for withdrawing its sponsorship of the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. This latest withdrawal of corporate sponsorship strengthens support for the Prevent All Soring Tactics Act, written to end the torture of horses to achieve the grotesque high step.

U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who is sponsoring a weak, worthless bill in opposition to the PAST act, should take note that public opinion favors the horses, not the pain-based industry responsible for their abuse.

Radar thinks the The Tennessean should publish more stories than once every 4 – 6 weeks covering what’s going on with the Tennessee Walking Horse story inside the State of Tennessee.

The Tennessee public needs to know in order to make an informed decision on this important issue on which the eyes of the nation are focused.

The Tennessean, unfortunately,   hasn’t covered:

  • The USDA Decertifying the Celebration’s S.H.O.W HIO – January 9, 2014
  • The SOUND HORSE CONFERENCE  held in Brentwood, Tennessee – March 29, 2014
  • Pat Stout suing the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders & Exhibitors Association for $1 million over her being suspended for polling the TWHBEA members on their opinion, “YES” or “NO” on the PAST ACT – May 20, 2014.

Meanwhile,  the eyes of the United States are focused squarely on the State of Tennessee.

THIS PICTURE SAYS IT ALL - NATURAL TENNESSEE WALKING HORSES HAVE THE SUPPORT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

And the cities of Shelbyville and Lewisburg are both ground zero.
