Supporting Sound Gaited Horses
The Northwest Gaited Horse Club and it's Evergreen Gaited Horse Classic show is the only organization in Washington State affiliated with the Friends of Sound Horses organization in support of sound gaited horses. “Sound” means not “sored”. Importance is placed on education regarding the humane care, training, and treatment of all gaited horses for their emotional, mental and physical well-being. FOSH will only support flat shod or barefoot horses, and will never endorse any event that uses stacks and/or chains as action devices, nor any mechanical, chemical or artificial means to modify the natural gaits of the horse. What is soring?
