USDA At KWHA Ladies Auxiliary Show...UPDATED



Copyright WHR 2007

The USDA attended the KWHA Ladies Auxiliary Spring Jubilee Horse Show in Harrodsburg, Kentucky on Friday night. While the Kentucky HIO DQPs did not write any tickets, the two USDA VMOs wrote five federal cases - one unilateral sore, one bilateral sore, one combination bilateral sore and scar rule, and two scar rules. Dr. Bourgeois was the lead VMO. Reportedly USDA VMOs are expected to return again on Saturday night. The Walking Horse Report will continue to update the story as it develops.


  
UPDATE:

The USDA attended the KWHA Ladies Auxiliary Spring Jubilee Horse Show in Harrodsburg, Ky., two of the three days. A total of nine alleged violations were written by the two VMOs for the time they were present. The violations were as follows: one combination of a unilateral sore and a scar, four scar rules, one bilateral sore, one combination of a bilateral sore and a scar and two unilateral sore.
However, a total of 216 walking horses made the gate call for the 297-entry event. The weather was great and many spectators came out to enjoy the first large show in Kentucky for the year. 
This is the first year that the KWHA Ladies Auxiliary has sponsored the Spring Jubilee Charity Horse Show. Since that time these efforts have benefited Central Kentucky Riding for Hope, a therapeutic riding program at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Although the Spring Jubilee has been held at the Mercer County Fairgrounds since the early 1990s this is the first time the KWHA Ladies Auxiliary has joined forces with the Mercer County Fair Board to expand this show to include American Saddlebreds, road horses and ponies. The Auxiliary is excited about the joint endeavor and hope that everyone enjoys seeing a variety of horses at one event as much as they enjoy bringing it to the public.
