This Tennessee Walking Horse stallion who was named World Grand Champion in 2016, is one of the best in the horse industry. His name is Honors, the stallion who brought back on track the “big lick” again.
As the NewsOfTheHorse shared with the public, according to USDA inspectors, back in 2013 Honors was sored with unilateral and inconsistent sore on his feet, at the Shelbyville National Celebration.
From the video we can only say that Honors is very talented, but the thing is that it doesn’t look natural and smooth, some of us might even say, that it looks bad and painful. Share your opinion with us!
Here the 2016 "Big Lick" World Grand Champion "Honors" Tennessee Walking Horse attempts to "Canter" at Asheville, NC. Merriam Webster defines a "Canter" as "a 3-beat gait resembling but smoother and slower than the gallop." What you are seeing here from "Honors" is anything but smooth. Some might say it looks "painful and ugly". Please note severity of bit shanks, size platform stack shoes and the chains on the front feet.
