Unbelievable...But True



     Trainer Jack Way called The Report to share his experience from this past weekend.  Jack was quick to point out that he is not upset that his horse was turned down and is not mad at anyone.  He simply believes his experience is an example of the dilemma people face when bringing horses up to inspection.

      Our American Pride, a four-year-old mare, was taken to Wartrace where she passed pre-show inspection and tied second in her amateur class.  She was inspected post show by the USDA VMO and Jack was told that she was in excellent condition
     Sixteen hours later Jack took her to the Belfast show where she was turned down by the DQP on scar rule.  Jack's point is not that the DQP was wrong and the government VMO right or vice versa.  It is just a graphic example of the dilemma people face when bringing horses up for inspection. 

     Who does know - who is right?!
