The use of the whip in Racing is archaic and barbaric.
It sends out the message that it is okay to hit horses. They are sentient beings and suffer from pain mentally as well as physically. Abuse and neglect of equines is commonplace and this macho, sadistic side of Racing fuels the ignorance of thousands of horse handlers.
There is no need for its use.

Anyone who ignores the fact that hitting horses is wrong is complicit in a bizarre self-serving lie.

Would we beat dogs or cats for entertainment?
Are you happy for this to continue?

    Will not support racing until the whip is banished, level the playing field and the fastest horse will win without being beaten for doing his best.

    It is totally unacceptable to whip a horse

    Horse whipping is barbaric, outdated & inhumane. It is shameful that we can call ourselves a Civilised Society when we still allow such horrendous practices to continue. The whip must be banned.

    A ban can't come quick enough, these wonderful creatures deserve better from the human race. Unfortunately money is more important to some than the well-being of animals.
