Ban the soring of Tennessee Walking Horses

This petition had 4,252 supporters

Soring is where incredibly harsh chemicals are put all over a horses' ankles and wrapped, leaving the chemicals to cook into the horses' skin making it very sensetive. They also put metal chains around their ankles as well as wearing high platforms on their hooves. This makes the horses walk and trot in an odd way which in many states is seen as Entertainment, known as 'The Big Lick'. This abuse to these poor horses needs to come to an end.
