Soring of Horses

The soring of horses includes any breed, not just Tennessee Walkers, but any breed of horse. This includes all gaited horses as well, Missouri Fox Trotters, Paso Finos, Peruvian Pasos, Icelandic Horses, Rocky Mountain Horses, Kentucky Mountain Horses, etc.

Soring is not limited to putting chains or chemicals on their legs, or stacks on their feet. It encompasses many different methods of weights, mechanical aids, and procedures, such as concussive practices (running on hard surfaces).
