NEWS and HOW YOU CAN HELP - A Bill To Be Introduced to Strengthen Kentucky's Anti-Soring Laws

******A CALL TO ACTION!!!******

A bill to strengthen the state of Kentucky's anti-soring law hopefully will be introduced this summer.  If you are a Kentucky resident, and even if you're not, please start NOW and contact your state rep and urge him/her to support the bill.

Plus, this Thursday, February 23, 2012 is "lobby" day at the State Capitol.  This is a time to come talk to your reps.  Members from various organizations such as FOSH, the HSUS, and other groups will be there.

Here's the contact information for the Kentucky state representatives.  You don't just have to contact the ones in your county--be sure to contact them all!  Click here for the Kentucky representatives Congressional District map.

PLEASE NOTE: Hal Rogers has been proven in the past to be on the side of the industry, so our voices NEED to be heard to represent the horse as he cannot speak for himself.  There is strength in numbers, so get your body in the capitol and your phone calls and emails in to them!
