Woodbury (Cannon County) TN is a proud community located about 20 miles East of Murfreesboro, TN. It’s near MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) which is Tennessee’s largest state supported university.
Woodbury is “only 55 miles from Nashville, but it’s a world away”. About 3,000 people live in Woodbury, and the Cannon County population is about 14,000
Despite it’s small size, Woodbury, TN has one of the largest Lion’s Clubs in the State of Tennessee.
The Lion’s Club Motto is:
Sadly, the Woodbury Lion’s Club biggest fund raiser is a Horse Show which features Animal Cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses (“Big Lick”). The Lions Club was chartered in 1935, and the Horse Show began in 1938.
The Tennessee Walking Horse was not abused with endemic institutionalized “SORING” until the 1960s. A Federal Law - Horse Protection Act of 1970 - was passed to stop it, but it has NOT stopped the Animal Cruelty.
Even worse, the Woodbury Lions Club “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Show is a source of great community pride.
The Woodbury Lions Club Horse Show features “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses. Most of the classes feature “Big Lick”Tennessee Walking Horses (24 of 40 classes). The Horses, including the “BABY” Two Year Olds wear approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES, and CHAINS hit the sensitive skin above the horses front hooves making them step high with their front legs. This is the “Big Lick” gait.
Native Tennessean distinguished MTSU Horse Science Professor Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner says the “Big Lick” is Animal Cruelty. Describing the “Big Lick”, Dr. John Haffner says, “It’s a pain induced gait … a business based upon the suffering and pain of Horses".
The Lions Club raises money from the Animal Cruelty and makes charitable donations.
