WALKING HORSE TRAINERS BOYZ SHOW (INLAND VERSION) SLOW COMING OUT OF THE GATE ON THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 2016

SHELBYVILLE, TN – The public boycott of the “Big Lick resulting from the 2015 Citizens Campaign Against Big Lick Animal Cruelty has apparently carried over into the 2016 Walking Horse Trainers Show at the Calsonic Arena owned by the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.

The Citizens Protests took approximately 30,000+ spectators out of the stands at the annua ten dayl Walking Horse Celebration.  The 2015 attendance was so bad that now seven months later Celebration CEO Mr. Mike Inman has yet to announce official attendance figures.

The WHTA Show got started Thursday night, but there were few people interested in attending.

The USDA showed up at the 2015 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration, and meant business,  enforcing the Horse Protection Act for the entire 10 days which resulted in a 35% disqualification of Big Lick Tennessee Walking Horses due to alleged Horse Protection Act Violations (Animal Cruelty).
