It's not legal, but on today's Tennessee Walking Horse show circuit, trainers still engage in the cruel practice of "soring"--using chemicals and devices to cause extreme pain to horses' legs and hooves to exaggerate their special gait.

I don't know how they could do this to such beautiful animals, except to win at all costs. I hope this can be stopped, it's horrible!!

It is despicable what they do to animals to get them to put on unnatural performances for public entertainment.Let's not forget the cruelty, torture, and murder not only of animals, but done to human babies as well, late term, fully formed humans as well. It's all insane, sick and evil.
