Here's a follow-up email I received this evening. Yet another important step to letting the gov't know that we support their decision and to keep the bad guys OUT! You can use this web address to contact your Congressional representative: https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml
Hello Sound Horse Supporters,
Since my first email this a.m., I have learned that the dark side is posting requests on many of their message boards that the USDA and congressional reps should be contacted to complain about the USDA stepping up inspections. I have a feeling the USDA is receiving hundreds of emails from them.
So, in addition to contacting the USDA to let them know you support enhanced inspections and sound horses in the show ring, we feel it would be helpful to contact the White House and your federal representatives.
The White House has a form at this website: http://www.whitehouse.gov/contact/
Some congressional reps can be contacted via email and others require completion of a form. Usually a few seconds of researching on Google provides the appropriate email address and format.
Thanking you in advance for taking the time to send messages to the USDA and reps. We know you do not want to be contacted with numerous email requests; however, when the situation is urgent and your emails will help, we realize you want to be informed.
