Stop the Abuse of Tennessee Walking Horses

This petition had 3,001 supporters

Recent undercover footage from the human society shows that Tennessee Walking Horse trainers are abusing their horses in a most horrific manner. In order to force the horses to walk with a certain gait, trainers are beating horses, zapping them with cattle prods, and soring--placing caustic chemicals on the horses ankles to induce sores, wrapping the sores in chain links, and forcing the horses to walk while experiencing excruciating pain. Recent testing of horses in a show, indicated that all 52 horses tested positive for caustic chemical residue on the ankles.
