I don't like the racing industry.
I'm a horse girl, have ridden and owned horses my whole life and competed regularly. I know a lot of people are against all sorts of horse competition, such as dressage, jumping etc. But I can tell you for 100% certain my horses and most equestrian horses are not only loved, but members of the family, and they enjoy competing as much as their riders.
Anyway, the racing industry is something else entirely. I DETEST the whipping, it makes me feel ill. The horses racing and training to race before they're even fully grown on their frail brittle growing bones. The discarding of thorougbreds when they have served their purpose or because they never will. The over-working, the money grabbing, the drugging..
Yeah. Not my scene.
