NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders' and Exhibitors' Association says the walking horse industry has "clearly lost the public."
According to The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/10H5Rbx ), association president Tracy Boyd posted a message this week on the group's website, stating he believes modern-day show horses are cleaner than they've ever been. But Boyd said no one outside the industry believes it after a series of horse soring cases came to light.
