JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI – HOME OF THE MISSISSIPPI CHARITY HORSE SHOW
A Show Manager in Jackson, Mississippi owned a Tennessee Walking Horse found “SORE” at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration. This same person reportedly invites people to the Jackson Horse Show to enjoy “Southern Hospitality” with all sorts of free breakfast and evening parties. Allegedly, the Show Manager offered Financial Incentives for Trainers to bring 10 or more horses with the Trains still getting the “Incentive Money” even if a Horse is turned down as “SORE” at the inspection.
