0 have signed. Let’s get to 15,000!
On May 28 - 30, 2015, one of the CRUELEST Horse Shows - the "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horse "COLUMBIA SPRING JUBILEE" is coming to the Maury County Park at Columbia, Tennessee.
This suffering laboring stumbling "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horse, a terrible example of "Big Lick" Animal Cruelty, was approved to show by USDA Official Dr. Chester Gipson in charge of inspections on March 28, 2015, at the Jackson, Mississippi Horse Show.
This Animal Cruelty will be on display as "Family Entertainment" at Columbia in three weeks. Over 66% of the classes, 33 of 50, will be "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horses just like this one.
Last year, the "Columbia Spring Jubilee" gave $7,500,00 to keep the "Big Lick" from being made illegal by Congress.
The "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horses are "SORED" to perform the "Big Lick" - a high stepping gait with large hoof build-ups, severe bitting and overweight hunched over riders on Two Year Old Horses.
“Soring” is the illegal and cruel practice of using chemical and mechanical methods to create pain in a gaited show horses front feet to exaggerate their animated step.
Columbia, Tennessee is a progressive beautiful city of 35,000 people about an hour South of Nashville. It is the largest City in Tennessee which hosts a "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horse Show. The reputation of Columbia and Maury County should not be marred by "Animal Cruelty" showcased at the Maury County Park.
The Southern States of Mississippi, North Carolina and Alabama have recently risen up against the "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horse "Animal Cruelty".
• March 6, 2015 - MISSISSIPPI - The UMMC (University of Mississippi Medical Center) Children's Hospital severed ties with the Mississippi Charity Horse Show in Jackson, Mississippi. It refused to accept "blood money" donations from the "Big Lick" horse show due to the national controversy regarding the care and training of "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horses.
• March 13, 2015 - NORTH CAROLINA - The North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner banned "Big Lick" Tennessee Walking Horses from the 2015 NC State Fair.
• APRIL 2, 2015 - ALABAMA - Over 70% voted landslide "NO" in The Decatur Daily newspaper online Poll Question: "Should Celebration Arena Have Hosted The Tennessee Walking Horse Trainers Show Given Its Previous Horse Soring Violations?"
*April 24-25, 2015 - TENNESSEE - Columbia, Maury County refused to support the "Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show". After one night, the Show left town and retreated to Shelbyville, Tennessee.
The Daily Herald (Columbia) newspaper Editor Mr. James Bennett wrote: "The industry, crawling on its knees with two black eyes, stands on the precipice of a great comeback or a colossal collapse."
COLUMBIA, MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE need to send the same MESSAGE again:
