Stop Animal Abusers from Owning Animals

Convicted animal abusers could soon be prevented from owning animals thanks to a proposed new bill. The bill would create a registry of convicted animal abusers and sanction all pet stores, breeders, and shelters who provide pets to them.

Pads and Chains Outlawed

Thank you to everyone who signed the petitions…

January 13, 2017

Washington – The USDA announced today that new rules prohibiting the use of padded shoes, chains, action devices, and other methods of soring horses have become law. The rule states, in part “Amend the regulations to prohibit use of pads, substances, and action devices on horses at horse shows, exhibitions, sales, and auctions…” Horse owners have 30 days to comply after publication of the final rule to cease using all action devices, except certain boots, at shows, sales or auctions. Pads and wedges are outlawed starting Jan 1, 2018.

The Office of Management and Budget finalized their review of the proposed changes to the 1970 Horse Protection Act on January the 10th.
As previously reported, those who show and participate in Walking Horse shows stated “The USDA proposed rules will severely negatively impact every aspect of the horse community,” a worker at the Bedford Tack booth told News of the Horse. When asked if padded shoes and chains are necessary for the Walking Horse show, he replied “No comment.” Celebration Show Staff refused to comment on the proposed USDA rules, other than to say they had never heard of them.

While Animal welfare activists are celebrating the rule changes, no doubt those in the Walking Horse industry are preparing lawsuits to file against the rule changes.
