April 10, 2012 USDA APHIS Horse Protection Program – Listening Sessions

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service’s (APHIS) Animal Care Program will hold listening sessions throughout the United States to obtain public feedback on the Horse Protection Program. In particular, APHIS is interested in hearing feedback on the questions below:

· Congress passed the Horse Protection Act in 1970 to eliminate the cruel and inhumane practice of soring horses. How close are we to achieving the goal?

· Can the industry achieve a consensus on how to carry out a self-regulatory program to enforce the Horse Protection Act in a consistent way?

· What responsibilities should USDA-certified Horse Industry Organizations (HIOs) have within the industry?

· How can the industry reconcile its inherent competition aspect with ensuring compliance with the Horse Protection Act?

· What can USDA do now (and in the future) to ensure compliance?

· What responsibilities should USDA have within the industry with respect to enforcement and what hinders oversight of the HIOs and/or industry?

· Should there be a prohibition of all action devices?

· Should there be a prohibition of pads?

· Currently the Horse Protection regulations have a shoe weight limit on yearlings. Should there now be a shoe weight limit for all aged horses?

The listening sessions are planned for the following dates and locations:

· March 7 – 9am to 1pm; Springhill Suites, 5800 High Point Drive, Irving, TX 75038

· March 8 – 9am to 1pm; University Plaza Hotel, 333 John Q Hammons Parkway, Springfield, MO 65806
