Finally, the horrible abuse inflicted by the Big Lick industry on innocent horses is over or at least there is a law in placing banning the soring, chains and pads used to make these innocent horses contort their body for the exaggerated big lick gaits.

It will be phased in supposedly so the horses can be taken off those awful pads gradually but supposedly by Jan. 2018, the massive pads will be history. This law applies only to TWH & Racking Horses because while other breeds like Saddlebreds use some pads but not the torture devices use by the big lick industry.

Anyhoo... for those that would like to read the law that was just passed, here is the link:
