To more efficiently share Horse Protection Act (HPA) information, USDA Animal Care is using the USDA/APHIS Stakeholder Registry to periodically alert you when we post our enforcement activities.
The following link contains individuals that we have recently disqualified under the Horse Protection Act: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/ies/downloads/disqualification_list.pdf. (This disqualification list is also attached to this message as a .pdf file.)
While under federal disqualification, a person is prohibited from showing, exhibiting or entering any horse – directly or indirectly – through any agent, employee or other device. Disqualification also prohibits an individual from judging, managing or otherwise participating in any horse show/exhibition/sale/auction.
We will continue to do all we can to make the cruel and inhumane practice of soring horses a thing of the past. For more information, please visit our Horse Protection Program webpage: http://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_welfare/hpa_info.shtml.
At USDA Animal Care, ensuring the welfare of the animals we regulate is at the heart of everything we do
