The WHTA has notified Gary Oliver, 63, of Lancaster, Kentucky, that his trainers license has been suspended indefinitely.  This action was taken upon the unanimous vote of the WHTA Board of Directors and Officers following receipt of information that Mr. Oliver's abuse and neglect of a Tennessee Walking Horse in his care resulted in the horse being euthanized. 

The WHTA is committed to promoting and protecting the welfare of the Tennessee Walking Horse and preserving the Walking Horse industry for future generations.
