[RC] AQHA Action Alert SB311 - k s swigart

Terry Bannister said:

Very subjective, and also OT for our "Endurance" forum

and from the proposed bill:

`(1) The Secretary may detain for examination, testing,
or the taking of evidence--

`(A) any horse at any horse show, horse exhibition, or
horse sale or auction that is sore or that the Secretary
has probable cause to believe is sore;

Anybody who thinks that a federal law allowing federal agents to impound
any horse "at any horse show, horse exhibition..." that "is sore" or
"has probable cause to believe is sore" is off topic with respect to
"endurance" is off their nut.

That would mean that federal agents could show up at any endurance ride
and start impounding every horse that had been pulled for lameness.

Doesn't sound off topic to endurance riders to me.
