The Walking Horse Trainers’ Association (WHTA) has announced a new resolution that calls for all trainers on suspension for a Horse Protection Act (HPA) violation to have their trainers’ license suspended for that same length of time.  The move emphasizes the WHTA’s commitment to the presentation of compliant horses and enforcement of the HPA.

The resolution was presented to the WHTA Board of Directors, Licensing Membership Enforcement Committee, Ethics Committee and Public Relations Committee.  The resolution was unanimously approved.

The suspension of the trainer’s license will be for the same amount of time as the suspension for their HPA violation and will happen as soon as the suspension begins for the HPA violation.
