I saw this video a few years ago and have an issue with lumping the "Paso breeds" into the world where soring occurs. I cannot speak for the Paso Fino folks, but soring DOES NOT HAPPEN in the Peruvian breed or in our shows.
We breed for gait. Period. Our shows FORBID shoes in qualifying classes. We don't allow any training aids or devices to be used EVER - no chains, no pads, no stretchies - we don't even allow hoof blacking or polishes.
The gait of the Peruvian Horse is so unique that there is no way to "fix" a Peruvian where the results would not be blatantly and obviously apparent.
I appreciate what the Scouts were trying to do with this video. I just wish they would have gotten their facts straight. (Big sigh).
