“The Tennessee walking horse has a beautiful natural gait. For some reason, we want more”, says Elvis Presley’s wife, Priscilla. This prize-winning gait known as the Big Lick is achieved by caustic substances being put on the horse’s legs so the skin burns and festers. Priscilla and Elvis Presley owned such walking horses in the past but now she is campaigning to bring the industry under fire. “There’s no justification whatsoever to put any animal through this process of torment”, she says.
