Priscilla Presley to be honored

The Humane Society of the United States will present its 2014 Humane Horsewoman of the Year Award to Priscilla Presley Saturday at the annual Wellington Equine Protection Benefit at The Wellington Club. The award recognizes Presley’s dedication to ending the cruel practice of “soring,” which involves the use of chemicals and other devices to inflict pain on the legs and hooves of Tennessee walking horses to produce a high-stepping gait for competitions. Presley worked tirelessly to raise awareness on the issue and lobby Congress to pass a bill outlawing the inhumane training method.
