Scarbrough Loses Final Appeal



Lonnie Messick of the National Horse Show Commission said that the full commission voted to uphold Toby Scarbrough’s penalty.

The original penalty issued by the NHSC goes into affect immediately.

Scarbrough’s privilege of obtaining or holding a NHSC judge’s license was revoked for life; his privilege to serve at the NHSC or hold or exercise an office at the NHSC was revoked for life; he was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine; and for a period of 10 years he was suspended from participating either directly or indirectly in any NHSC affiliated or sanctioned event which includes but is not limited to the showing, exhibiting or selling of a horse owned in whole or in part by him or in which he has financial interest or owned in whole or in part by any entity in which he has ownership or financial interest.

Six of the 10 years of suspension will be suspended on the following conditions: the fine imposed must be paid during the calendar year of 2003; during the first four years of the suspension he must not participate either directly or indirectly at any NHSC or other HIO affiliated or sanctioned event or any other unaffiliated walking or racking horse event to include but is not limited to the showing, exhibiting or selling of a horse owned in whole or in part by him or in which he has financial interest or owned in whole or in part by any entity in which he has ownership or financial interest; and he must not violate any NHSC rule or regulation during the entire 10 year period. Any failure to abide by the terms of the suspension will result in the imposition of the balance of the 10 year suspension.
