- AAWHA letter,
- List containing 5,196 Change.org Petition signatures,
- List of 1,725 Change.org Petition comments.
The AAWHA letter asked Mr. Taylor to publicly announce his decision by 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, March 18, 2015, whether or not Mr. Taylor is going to CANCEL the 59 “Big Lick” classes at the Mississippi Charity Horse Show, and ban them in the future.
Mr. Taylor has known about the Change.Org Petition since February 27, 2015.
On March 5, 2015, the UMMC (University of Mississippi Medical Center) disassociated the Batson Children’s Hospital from the Mississippi Charity Horse Show, and said it would no longer accept a charitable donation from the event. The hospital cited “the national controversy over the way Tennessee Walking Horses are trained and handled “” particularly those that perform in the ‘Big Lick’ style “” has brought us to this decision.”
