0 have signed. Let’s get to 50,000!

Shelbyville (Bedford County) TN is a wonderful community where warm,  friendly caring people live and worship, and believe in the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution.

Unfortunately,  Shelbyville (Bedford County) TN is a VICTIM of the ANIMAL CRUELTY being perpetrated upon the Tennessee Walking Horse breed.   Native Tennessean MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick” is Animal Cruelty -  It is a business built on the suffering and pain of horses”.

The “Big Lick” Multi-Millionaires who have made the local David L. Howard Family wealthy,  are holding Shebyville (Bedford County) HOSTAGE.   They pay the Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ to SORE their horses so they can enjoy the Animal Cruelty Racket.

It all starts with the “BABY HORSES” – Two Year Olds shown while wearing EIGHT POUND+/- SHOES and CHAINS.  No other equine breed does this.

The local citizens of Shelbyville (Beford County) TN are silently BOYCOTTING the annual Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.   

In 2018,    the Walking Horse “Celebration” is a dying event.   

U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) has not attended the Celebration in 34 years.  

The Governor of Tennessee no longer “Crowns” the World Grand Champion Tennessee Walking Horse on the final Saturday night of the 10 day event.


In 2017, the Celebration World Grand Champion “Gen’s Black Maverick” was discovered to be allegedly SORE at the Celebration (2016).  It took a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Oxford, MS to obtain the “Smoking Gun” evidence.  USDA Vets said the horse was SORE in both front feet.   Facing these allegations,  Trainer BOYZ Mr. Bill Callaway and two owners Mr. Keith and Ms. Lorraine Rosbury consented to USDA Suspensions and fines in the face of USDA Horse Soring charges.


In 2018,   CCABLAC focused on the “BABY HORSE” Torture of Two Year Olds.   “BABY HORSES” are often started under saddle at 16 - 17 months old.   On this video of a “BABY HORSE” on April 14, 2018, TWHBEA Breed President Mr. David Williams, says,  “I Am Smiling - Another Myatt Monster”.
