Our Position On Richard Hudgins

We appreciate the calls we have received relative to an email being distributed by Richard Hudgins. We are aware of the content of that email.

We stated our position in the May 17, 2004, print edition of the Saddle Horse Report. We repeat that statement here and let our position stand.

Richard T. Hudgins has signed an agreement to honor the terms of his non-compete with Dabora, Inc. Additionally, Hudgins has had his Georgia slander lawsuit against Dabora dismissed and agreed to write a letter of apology to the company.

With our cooperation, he has taken a job with the Voice magazine, the official publication for the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ and Exhibitors’ Association in Lewisburg, Tenn.

Hudgins is no longer an employee of Bluegrass Horseman and, according to owner Keith Cupp, there was never any agreement written or verbal for Hudgins to purchase his publication.

Dabora was represented by legal counsel in Shelbyville, Tenn., and Macon, Ga., while Hudgins was represented by his uncle.

We are pleased to put this matter behind us and wish Hudgins success in his new job. We appreciate the many letters and comments of support during this ordeal and regret any difficulty caused to our employees, customers and friends.
