Using the whip…!

I’ve never actually read an article about horse-racing before but i’m glad I read this one…

Lots has been made of the negative impacts of whips on horses and this is the first time i’ve read something which challenges that viewpoint.

There’s still the animal rights argument that we shouldn’t be manipulating and using the animals for our enjoyment and sport – i’d rather support sports such as football, where the participants are involved out of their own free will.
