Cantrell Urges Trainers To Respond



Editor's Note:  The following is a letter to the WHTA membership from President Bill Cantrell.

July 11, 2011

Dear WHTA Members,

July 26, 2011 at midnight could change the future of our walking horse industry.  This is the deadline to respond to the USDA Rulemaking.  (You have received the appropriate filing addresses in a previous news brief to you.)

This is a heartfelt plea to all WHTA members to take a stand and send in your PERSONAL response.  This is the most significant matter that has impacted the Tennessee Walking Horse Industry in almost 40 years.  OUR LIVELIHOOD IS AT STAKE.  OUR PROFESSION IS AT STAKE.  We CAN NOT live with the mandatory penalties.

Our Trainers Association has 650 members.  It is absolutely imperative that each member sends in a response.  Logically thinking, I know this is an impossible goal.  However, if we can get at least a 70% response rate…this would be a huge accomplishment.

Remember, the time to ACT is NOW.  We can’t answer today’s and especially tomorrow’s problems with yesterday’s solutions.  That shoe no longer fits.

I challenge each of you to take the time and respond. This could be the only opportunity to save our future. 

Thank You,
Bill Cantrell, WHTA President
