Please Boycott Animal Cruelty At Columbia Spring Jubilee Horse Show At Maury County Park

This petition had 2,576 supporters

Columbia, Tennessee is a jewel of a city in picturesque Middle Tennessee.  

Columbia (Maury County)   is also the largest city in Tennessee which still hosts three days of “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty at its public Maury County Park.

 It’s called the annual Columbia Spring Jubilee Horse Show.

Native Tennessean and Noted Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner said the "Big Lick" is a "business built on the suffering and pain of horses".  Dr. Haffner is a member of the Horse Science Faculty at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University) in Murfreesboro, TN,  He came to his conclusion stemming from an incident which happened at the Columbia Spring Jubilee Horse Show.

Last year at the Columbia Horse Show, a “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Trainer committed an act of violence by driving a large dually truck (while pulling a trailer loaded with horses) at a lady protesting against the Animal Cruelty.    World Champion Trainer Mr. Jamie B. Lawrence was subsequently indicted in July 2015 of Aggravated Assault With A Deadly Weapon,  and then convicted by a Maury County Jury in February 2016 of the crime of Assault.

 The “Big Lick” violence made national news,  and Columbia owned the stigma of lawlessness,  and the Animal Cruelty associated with the “Big Lick”.

 In April,  USDA Vet inspectors disqualified 40% of the “Big Lick” Horses at the Panama City Beach “Big Lick” Horse Show for alleged Animal Cruelty.    Also,  lawless acts were committed by “Big Lick” supporters at the public park where persons handing out literature against Animal Cruelty were harrassed and threatened with arrest.

 Over 85,000+ persons, from all over America and the World,  have now signed Change.Org Petitions by Citizens Against “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty.  

 U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack  is now poised to end “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty by Federal Regulation.

 Please show U. S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Visack that Citizens of America and the World support his courageous action.

 Please SIGN and SHARE this Petition.

Your Signatures and Comments will be delivered to the Horse Show Manager and to the Columbia, Maury County,  elected officials

 Please stand up for “Gen’s Ice Glimmer”,  “Honors”,  and all  the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses who have suffered for decades from this Animal Cruelty located in a beautiful part of America.
