BFF is right, and besides there were already rules about shanking, and everyone did it anyway, this is just different wording.
as for shoes I can win at the local rates shows with barefoot horses in WP, and I see changes in the western horses, not so much drape in the ammy division. I hope things keep changing for the better. at least this looks like they are trying. as for the USEF going, I think a lot of it is due to fees for those showing. the QH dont' use USEF and they have no more or less issues than we do as a breed. it would save a ton of money.
It is not the quality of silver on your horse, it is the quality of horse under your silver.

I pray that we stay with USEF. The folks that have been running AHA already favor the BNTS and always have. You don't let the inmates run the assylum.

I show AQHA also, and they have their own drug testers. It is cheaper, too. But I hear what those of you in favor of staying with USEF are saying. Very apt analogy, BFF.

I doubt very seriously that AHA will leave USEF.  It will be another black mark on our breed if we do and I don't think most people want that.  My friend attended convention this year and had a lot positive to say about our president, Cynthia Richardson.  Of course, it takes a woman to clean some clocks and take no prisoners. ;)

I have mixed feeling. I want to think that things will get better, but knowing how many of those guys operate, the horses will just be "schooled" that much harder at home.

Are the videos that were used for the protest up anywhere?

I would be interested in this as well.

As far as I know, the videos are not posted anywhere and  AFAIK, the identity of the trainers/handlers is also not known.  The group that filed the protests was pretty clear they were looking for industry wide changes and not to turn this into a witch hunt, so they've played this pretty close to their chests.

Thank you for the information.

Even with the new rule the BNTs who set the breeding trends will continue to be coated in Teflon.

The videos were on Facebook but they pulled them down when they sent them to USEF. The one that stuck with me was a trainer showing a young horse to the judges, then immediately coming at it with the whip and aggressively shanking it as soon as the judges walked away. The camera was on the horse and handler the whole time and I don't remember seeing any misbehavior from the horse before he went after it. It just looked to me like a horse doing its best and getting punished for it...pretty sad.

 

I won't get too excited but I hope the new rules are enforced.

Sadly, the inmates already run the Asylum. Much like our political joke of a situation, nothing is really going to change until there is a leader willing to demand change.
