Mr. Landrum,  and his assistant trainers over those approximately 25 years,  have an  extensive  record of horse soring.  Horse soring is hurting horses for competitive advantage in the show ring.  It goes on in the barn where horses are trained and in the show ring where they are exhibited.

David Landrum was current TWHBEA President Steve Smith’s Trainer when Mr. Smith was ticketed as Exhibitor of a sore horse.   When Steve Smith ran for President of TWHBEA he answered a question “NO” if he had ever received a HPA violation notice from a HIO.
