Help End Horse Soring

2019 Celebration Grand Champion winner suspended

The script never changes when it comes to horse soring, does it?

Clant Seay writes:

World Grand Champion “Big Lick” Trainer BOYZ Mr. Rodney Dick upholds “Tennessee Tradition” of going on the USDA federal suspension list for alleged “horse soring” shortly after the conclusion of this year’s Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration.

But that’s not all of course. It never is with these “folks”. Seay adds:

Mr. Rodney Dick will start serving an 18 month USDA Federal Suspension on October 1, 2019, for two alleged “Horse Soring” violations occurring at the 2016 TWH Celebration. Mr. Dick also agreed to pay a $2,200.00 fine related to his suspension which will end March 31, 2021.

Of course this atrocious human being could care less because he got his ribbon. All of that horrific abuse of a horse who could barely canter because of the excruciating pain he was in — for a lousy ribbon. Where else would you see such a thing? We must stop it.

S.1007 — The PAST Act

Please contact your two U.S. Senators today and ask them to cosponsor S.1007, the PAST Act, and stay committed to giving it their yes vote. The PAST Act has already passed the U.S. House 333-96. When the PAST Act becomes law it will end the ongoing monstrous acts of animal cruelty that is horse soring.

It will only take you a few minutes. Will you do that for these horses?

Type up what you want to say. Go to and find your two Senators. If you don’t know who they are there’s a drop down box where you can sort by State. Click on their links to go to their pages. Click on the email link. Copy & paste your message. Send.

We hope you will speak from the heart. This will impress your lawmakers more than anything else.

If you have any questions email us at or ask us in comments below.

In case you need to see what this looks like again.

Seay tells us more:

Trainer BOYZ Mr. Rodney Dick is the second Walking Horse Trainer to go on USDA Suspension for alleged “Horse Soring” charges in the last three years.

The first was Walking Horse Trainer BOYZ Mr. Bill Callaway who established the “Tennessee Tradition” of going on USDA Federal Suspension for alleged “horse soring”. Mr. Callaway did so at 12:01 A.M. on Monday, September 4, 2017, after winning the Celebration World Grand Championship at 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 2, 2017.

Ask Congress to close the loopholes that allows this horrific “sport” to go on.

Thank you on behalf of I’m Mayhem and all of the thousands of horses like him who have suffered and will continue to suffer these cruelties unless we bring it to an end for them.

  1. How much more proof do Marsha Blackburn, and Lamar Alexander and Mitch McConnell need to vote for the PAST act! It is Past time to stop this abuse to these animals. I know how vicious these people are , my husband and I protested in Columbia and saw Jamie Lawrence try to hit a fellow protestor . If these jerks could run over a human being imagine what they do to these helpless animals. These senators need to get on board and vote to pass this , it has become an eye sore on Tennessee ! Please , please call everyday , they stopped Ringling Brothers Circus because the abuse to the animals NOW it’s Past time to vote in favor of the PAST act!!!!!
    Way Past!!!!!!!!!


  2. After coming across the abhorrent cruelty to these poor horses about 10 years ago, I’m in disbelief that America still has not outlawed this despicable activity.


    1. We have Tenneessee and Kentucky politicians responsible for that. If we were millionaires we could outbid them and get it done. People power is the other way. Surely we have enough horse lovers who will take 10 minutes to help these suffering horses. We pray every day we do.

      1. Well those politicians in Tennessee and Kentucky who are responsible for legalizing this abhorrent horse cruelty are not fit for office.
