Video du Jour: A sore subject

Tennessee Walking Horse soring is a subject we’ve spoken out against repeatedly here at Horse Nation. In the past few days, the issue has reached a fever pitch, prompted by the Humane Society’s release of this undercover video last week. An ABC News investigation followed, as did PepsiCo’s announcement on Thursday that it was dropping its sponsorship of the Tennessee Walking Horse Celebration, held annually in Shelbyville, TN.

Warning: This video contains graphic, extremely disturbing content that some viewers may find difficult to watch.

A big thanks to reader Sara Fogelberg for bringing the video to our attention.
