Tennessean Calls For Mr. Charles Gleghorn’s Resignation
“This person, Mr. Gleghorn, should not be considered a suitable representative for the industry breed registry (TWHBEA) because of his repeated violations resulting in a 3 years disqualification under the HPA. This is another example of the dishonesty and disinterest of the TWHBEA to hold its officers and representatives accountable to its own by=laws, HPA regulations, decency when it comes this magnificent breed. There is absolutely no reasonable argument for this person to stay in this position. There are those who would argue that the industry can police itself and not involved the government. This is just another example that the “fox” guarding the TWHBEA and horse shows inspection which does not and will never work. They do not desire to hold their own accountable protecting the horse and the real industry rather than their own riches. This man needs to be removed from the office(s) that he holds.” Ms. Rachael Robinson – Sparta, TN
