SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. - The SHOW HIO has tabulated the final inspection results from the 2011 National Trainers’ Show held last weekend, March 17-19, at the Calsonic Arena. The SHOW DQPs present at the show were Tony Edwards, DQP Coordinator, John Paul Riner and Bill Coleman. The USDA was also present at the National Trainers’ Show with a team of two VMOs.

In total 442 entries were presented for inspection in the three nights.  A total of 35 pre-show violations were written. The breakdown of those 35 violations is the following:

Bilateral Sensitivity – 6
Unilateral Sensitivity – 22
Scar Rule – 1
Bad Image – 1

During the show, the USDA checked all second and third places horses after the show and SHOW checked each first place entry.  The breakdowns of the 13 post show violations were:

Scar Rule – 6
High Band – 2
Illegal Shoeing – 1
Open Lesion – 1

In addition to the above 48 HPA violations, four horses were excused pre-show for unacceptable, which is not an HPA violation. “Overall we were very pleased with the inspection process and the success of the National Trainers’ Show,” said President Dr. Stephen L. Mullins. He continued, “We were pleased with our working relationship with the USDA VMOs as well as the effort the trainers put forth to bring compliant horses to the inspection station. The number of entries at the Trainers’ Show speaks volumes to the efforts of our trainers, the staff at SHOW and our consistent and fair inspections by our DQPs.”
