Sure, I’ll tell you about those horse races — and all thoroughbred horse racing. They take BABY horses who haven’t even fully grown and certainly haven’t developed proper bone strength, then they throw a person upon their young backs and tell them to RUN as fast as they can! Maybe the baby horses enjoy it but they don’t know that in 3 or 5 years they will be CRIPPLED. The owners don’t care — most of the money is made in breeding. All they care about is that their horse wins a few races and makes a name for himself, so that he can become a valuable stud. They don’t CARE that the horse can never walk comfortably again. They made their money, why should they CARE that they doomed a beautiful animal to spend the rest of his life in pain?
Ever wonder why so many horses break their legs during races? It’s because they are STILL BABIES and should not even be ridden, never mind raced!!
Horses should NEVER be ridden until they are 3 years old, never worked really hard until they are 4 and never, ever jumped until they are 5. Racing 2 and 3 year old baby horses is cruel, immoral and just plain WRONG.
There now, aren’t you glad you asked?
