SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A published report says a veterinarian touted as being part of a council to guard against horse soring says he never agreed to serve and hasn't had any dealings with the group.

Dallas O. Goble of Knoxville told The Tennessean ( ) that while he was approached about joining the council, he declined the offer for "professional reasons."

The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration announced in July that it had formed a veterinary advisory committee to be composed of Goble and veterinary doctors Jerry H. Johnson and Phillip D. Hammock.

Johnson said the group's primary mission is to protect the horses and set a gold standard that he hopes will be utilized by the industry.

The veterinarians were in charge of overseeing inspections to guard against horse soring at the show in Shelbyville this week.
