TWHBEA Opposes Horse Protection Amendments Act of 2012

Lewisburg, TN - In response to the proposed Horse Protection Amendments Act (H.R. 6388), which was presented on September 13, 2012 by Congressmen Ed Whitfield (R-KY) and Steve Cohen (D-TN), the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ And Exhibitors’ Association (TWHBEA) reaffirms its support of any legislation that continues to strengthen the Horse Protection Act, to promote sound horses, and to protect the overall welfare of our great horse. However, it is TWHBEA’s desire that any such legislation be fair and consistent as well as scientifically based. TWHBEA is strongly opposed to the amendment as written. As the official breed registry TWHBEA is committed to the betterment and welfare of all of the divisions of the Tennessee Walking Horse and its supporting industries.
