The All American Walking Horse Alliance is proud to announce an historical event supporting passage of the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act.

On June 18, 2014, in honor of sound, easy gaited horses across America, a Walk On Washington took place in Union Square, Washington, DC.

This event  featured Tennessee Walking/Spotted Saddle/Racking Horses in exhibition, showcasing the natural ability, versatility and sound temperament of these exceptional horses. Remarks supportive of passage of the PAST Act were delivered by distinguished guests.

Our speakers included Rep. Ed Whitfield (R-KY), Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL),Jay Hickey - President of the American Horse Council, Whitney Miller of the American Veterinary Medical Association, and Former Senator Joe Tydings, Father of the Horse Protection Act. 

We brought public attention and legislative action to this bipartisan legislation. The PAST Act currently enjoys the co-sponsorship of 304 members of the House of Representatives (HR1518) and 57 Senators (S1406). Endorsements have been received by such prestigious organizations as the AVMA, the AAEP, the USEF and the AHC. Additionally, the HSUS, the ASPCA and dozens of horse related organizations support passage of the bills. 

The PAST Act is an amendment to the original Horse Protection Act of 1970. Upon passage, penalties for soring will increase, enforcement will once again reside with the USDA and devices implicated in the abuse of soring will be banned.
