The things people will do for a ribbon...ASPCA Files Legal Petition with USDA to Stop Horse Soring!

This month, the ASPCA filed a legal petition with the USDA to strengthen it's enforcement of the HPA (Horse Protection Act), most specifically against the act of horse "soring".
According to the HSUS, horse "soring" is an illegal training method which "involves the intentional infliction of pain to a horse's legs or hooves in order to force the horse to perform an artificial, exaggerated gait." This is most often associated with Tennessee Walking Horses and other gaited breeds.
