Outlaw Horse Racing In California

Upward of 2,000 horses die on American racetracks every year. In 2016, there were roughly 170 deaths on California tracks alone. (horseracingwrongs.com) All to serve people’s desire to place a $2 bet. Despite the typical opening day festivities with ladies in fancy garb and big hats, there is nothing glamorous about horse racing. Racetracks are battlefields where horses pay with their lives for our entertainment. How can we justify a spectacle in which an animal gets instantly euthanized for merely spraining an ankle or breaking a leg? Racehorses are tormented and tortured for the sole purpose of generating profits for their owners and race promoters. How is this, the so-called “Sport of Kings”, still legal? It wasn’t that long ago that another blood sport - greyhound racing - was legal in much of the United States. A more enlightened view has emerged that rightly recognizes it for what it truly is; cruel, inhumane and exploitative. Animal activists and advocates have fought long and hard to render it illegal in 40 states and counting. Similarly, horse racing should be outlawed. Regulations to improve treatment of horses and reduce their rate of death are ineffective, as they are neither followed nor enforced. Frankly, given the money at stake, there are huge incentives to cheat at the track, as well as recklessly breed horses for speed to the detriment of their general health. The only answer is complete abolishment of the horse racing industry. California can pave the way for other states by being the first to pass legislation making horse racing illegal. Please join me in calling upon California lawmakers to ban horse racing, as well as gambling on horse racing, in the State of California.

Eliminate ALL Two Year Old Tennessee Walking Horse Classes (“Big Lick”)

The Tennessee Walking Horse is the ONLY equine breed in the World which shows TWO YEAR OLDS wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES with CHAINS hitting the sensitive skin above the horse's front hooves. The "Baby" Horses are put into "TRAINING" often as early as 14-15 months old. They are "STARTED" with a "SMALL" foot/package which is built up to the larger size platform shoes.  They are "SORED" to see if they can "WALK" through the pain,  and Step High to be a Tennessee Walking Show Horse. This is the prized (and abominable) "Big Lick" Gait. Here is a Video of "Amazing Honor", TWHBEA Registration #21602014 -       (Foal Date - April 14, 2016)  - She was started under saddle on September 6, 2017 at the age of 17 Months.   This video shows 59 DAYS of "Big Lick" Training      (Sep. 6 - Nov. 4) needed to "Make" a "Big Lick" Show Prospect. https://youtu.be/KOouMSaKRdE A nightmare of Animal Cruelty was on display in Laurel, MS last  Saturday night,   March 3, 2018.    Viewed over 161,000 times,  this CCABLAC Video shows a 23 month Tennessee Walking Horse – “HRH Princess Charlotte” – struggling to do the high stepping “Big Lick” gait.  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/1458130324310059/ “HRH Princess Charlotte” is trying to go in a straight line while wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES,  and CHAINS are hitting her sensitive skin above her front hooves.  “HRH Princess Charlotte’s” foal date is March 26, 2016.  At 23 months, she is the equivalent of a 15 year old child.  “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”.  “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. Here is a CCABLAC Video of the TWO YEAR OLD Gelding Class at the 2017 Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration which has been seen over 675,000 times.  https://www.facebook.com/BillyGoBoy/videos/1287773114679115/  And this shocking (DoDo) video  - "Here's What Soring Does To Horses" -  exposes the “Big Lick” Tennessee Walking Horse Racket as nothing more than base and abject ANIMAL CRUELTY.    https://www.facebook.com/DodoImpact/videos/1602145449802542/ The video has been viewed over 15 MILLION TIMES  since being released on March 7, 2017.  It features “Gen’s Ice Glimmer”,  an abused Tennessee Walking Show Horse. https://youtu.be/0G95-ANvkPE Many Tennessee Walking Horses like “HRH Princess Charlotte” are started under saddle as merely “Babies” – about 15-17 months old.    Putting a 23 month old filly in the Show Ring wearing approximately EIGHT POUND SHOES and CHAINS is barbaric,  and an atrocity.  The "Big Lick" gait should never be accepted or sanctioned by civilized society in 2018.
