Sid Miller Told by AQHA To Stop Exercising His Horses By Having Them Behind His Moving Truck

DMN

Republican Sid Miller, a former representative from Stephenville now running for the statewide office, acknowledged that he received the warning but said he’s done nothing wrong. Witnesses complained after Miller tethered three of his prize-winning quarter horses to the back of a trailer and exercised them by driving them around slowly in circles at a show in May in San Antonio.

Experts said if a horse rears back or falls during such an exercise, it can break its neck or leg. Miller said the concern is unjustified because his horses are trained for the activity.

Yeah, but the American Quarter Horse Association is.

Tommy Merritt, a former Republican House member from Longview, said Miller “brings a great disgrace to the profession for treating his animals that way.” Miller, a former representative from Stephenville, said Merritt knew so little about horses that Miller once had to help him saddle one. “Tommy doesn’t know squat about horses,” Miller said. “He’s not qualified to make that statement.”

Reminded me of something.
