SHELBYVILLE, TN – The Trainer Boyz President Mr. Billy Young, crosses his heart and hopes to die, says the Trainer BOYZ are not getting a “fair shake”.
Mr. Young said: “I think it’s every important us to as members of the Trainers Association … continue communicating with our elected officials and impress on them so much of the negative aspects of what they have heard about this breed … have been exaggerated, half-truths negative things by the radical organizations are untruths and in some cases are outright untruths.

How can Mr. Billy Young expect the Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ to be taken seriously when he is fined $1,100.00 and agrees to an eight month Federal Suspension from Horse training after being issued Horse Protection Act Violation Citations for soring a horse in 2011?
And the former Chairman of the WHTA Ethics Committee Mr. Larry Joe Wheelon is facing an 18 count indictment on aggravated animal cruelty charges in Blount County, Tennessee. Mr. Wheelon is afforded the presumption of innocence.

Nephew Eugene is hearing that Mr. Billy Young and the Trainer BOYZ just might select Heart of America Walking Horse Association HIO to inspect the BOYZ horses at the 47th Annual National Trainers Show in Decatur, Alabama.
This is one more example of the Trainer BOYZ telling Celebration Chairman David L. Howard to take his Calsonic Arena and the Celebration’s inspection program, S.H.O.W. HIO’s Inspection Program, and shove it.

Harold says “they done turned Show Manager Mr. Benny Johnson out to pasture, and they done made sure Mr. David Landrum didn’t get elected to no Trainer BOYZ position”.
Meanwhile plans are being made in 2015 for the American Public to carry the fight for “The Horses” to where the soring is taking place.
