The Worst Kind of Torture - Horse Soring - ACID poured onto Horses Feet!

Please sign the petition urging the US Senate to enforce the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, (S. 1406/H.R. 1518).

Horse Soring is a cruel and hideous torture inflicted on the Tennessee Walking Horse, bred and shown for its distinctive gait. It is a cruel practice of firstly tying up horses by their head and then pouring acid and burning chemicals on their feet to deliberately inflict pain and have them produce the "Big Lick", which is walking around an arena lifting their front legs up high because they are in too much pain to walk on them.  

It is a freak show with the horse who lifts up their feet the highest winning ribbons. This deliberate cruelty is illegal but hardly enforced and needs more support of the above act to finally end the appalling torture of this wonderful, mild natured breed of horse.

Please sign this petition to end this cruelty, all in the name of horse shows!

This is a petition which originated in Australia and signed by many people, over 1000, that prove that many people around the world are against horse soring, and support the PAST Act HR1518 and HR1518 s.1406. Please make these bills law and know that we will remain vigilant until the cruelty involved with these horses is ended.
