PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO CONTACT YOUR CONGRESS PERSONS!
And please do it more than once to emphasize the importance of this to be passed!
Go to www.senate.gov and www.house.gov and go to the upper right corner to find your Congress person.
Below is a document I prepared with the original HPA side by side with the HPA including the amendments of H.R. 6388. The amendment changes are in red. I talked about the changes that are most prominent in this post. I also want to point out that the breeds of horses that will be affected are clearly spelled out in the amendment: Tennessee Walking Horses, Racking horses, and Spotted Saddle Horses. The changes will not affect other breeds that use pads and bands on their horses because, quite frankly, they have not abused the privilege of using pads and bands like the TWH industry has.
If you're having trouble reading it, try your Zoom option in your Internet browser, or you can view the PDF of this comparison here.
Please remember: those who oppose this are clearly not for the horse or upholding the law. I think it's obvious that those who oppose H.R. 6388 are in support of the abuse or are abusers themselves. Let's do our best to stop these monsters by continuing to contact our Congress persons and letting them know we want to see the madness end, permanently.
