Denise Rowland gets the facts wrong (“Tennessee Walking Horse Industry Follows Regulations” May 30) about our organization and the widespread nature of the cruel practice of horse “soring.” But consider the source: Ms. Rowland herself has violated the federal Horse Protection Act; two USDA veterinarians disqualified her horse from showing because of evidence he had been sored. She is an apologist for the industry, which has had four decades to eradicate soring and has failed miserably. Meanwhile, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, all 50 state Veterinary Medical Associations, the American Association of Equine Practitioners and many other industry organizations support the PAST Act and staunchly oppose the bogus Blackburn/Alexander legislation.
