The mission of FOSH, Friends of Sound Horses, Inc:
To promote all "sound," naturally gaited horses, with a specific emphasis on Tennessee Walking 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.
"Some people buy their kids expensive toys, well we buy our kids expensive horses and give them
both a pile of dirt to play with.” The Urry family in Providence, Utah
