Ms. Presley praised the  UMMC (University of Mississippi Medical Center) for taking a huge step by severing ties with  the Mississippi Charity Horse Show which features 59 “Big Lick” Classes.  The UMMC cited  “the national controversy over the way Tennessee Walking Horses are trained and handled “” particularly those that perform in the ‘Big Lick’ style”.

The 2014 Mississippi Charity Stake Champion,  “Gen’s Black Magic” was SORED at the 2012 Mississippi Charity Show.

Change.Org Petition originator Clant M. Seay of Oxford, Mississippi said “I am gratified that Ms. Presley whose heartfelt passion on this issue is well known has come forward to join the #MISSISSIPPICAMPAIGN.      I am also extremely proud of my alma mater Ole Miss for taking the lead on distancing itself from the SORING associated with the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse.  The University of Mississippi has led the way, and others will now follow.”
