American Horse Council President Addresses PAST Act Rumors
Published Date: Aug 29, 2019
American Horse Council President, Julie Broadway, reached out to breed organization leadership today to address rumors that have been circulating regarding the PAST Act.
First, we want to assure you that the PAST Act is restricted to the three horse breeds that continue to be the target of soring practices, including Tennessee Walking Horses, Spotted Saddle Horses, and Racking Horses. We have spoken with a number of congressional offices and have been assured there is no plans to amend the senate bill to expand this.
Second, if the scope of the bill was amended beyond the three names breeds, AHC would oppose it.
Third, Bryan Brendle - AHC’s policy and legislative director was in Senator Crapo’s office just two days ago and confirmed they are trying to get a hearing but none has been scheduled.
The AHC has made themselves readily available to continue to work with our organization leadership to address any additional concerns.
