Laurel (Jones County) MS is a progressive prosperous community located in the Southeastern part of Mississippi.   Laurel (Jones County) is especially proud of   “The Magnolia Center” - Home of the South Mississippi Fair.  This modern indoor arena is owned by Jones County (MS), and is run by a City - County appointed Board of Directors.

Sadly, “The Magnolia Center” will host the “Laurel Charity “Big Lick” Walking Horse Show”  on March 3, 2018.  This show will feature “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horses (20 of 34 classes) wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES,   as CHAINS hit the sensitive skin above the horses hooves making them step high with their front legs.

“The ‘Big Lick’ is a pain induced gait,”  says Equine Vet Dr. John Haffner,  Horse Science Professor at MTSU (Middle Tennessee State University),  “It is a business based on the suffering and pain of Horses".

This shocking video  - "Here's What Soring Does To Horses" -  exposes the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Racket as ANIMAL CRUELTY.    The video has been viewed almost 15 MILLION TIMES (14,743,888)  times since being released on March 7, 2017.   “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.

Unfortunately,  Laurel (Jones County) MS will be associated with the stigma of “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty as long as it hosts this “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Show.

In 2015,  the University of Mississippi Medical Center (UMMC)  in Jackson, MS,  severed all ties with the Mississippi Charity“Big Lick” Horse Show held at the State Coliseum.    UMMC  refused to accept a $50,000.00 annual donation to its Children’s Hospital from the Mississippi Charity Horse Show due to its featuring “Big Lick” TWH Animal Cruelty.

The Jackson “Big Lick” Horse Show is no longer in existence.

Also staining the Laurel (Jones County) MS community is horse show organizers hired a Horse Show Judge who was convicted of assault in February 2016 for driving a large truck and horse trailer at a female CCABLAC Animal Welfare protestor who was peacefully protesting Animal Cruelty at a “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Show in Columbia, Tennessee.


Laurel (Jones County) MS is too fine a place, and simply does not need “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty on display at its beautiful “The Magnolia Center”.

Your Signatures and Comments will be delivered to Laurel (Jones County) MS officials.
