Three miles of absolute agony for these wonderful animals, plus jumps that are far too high.

I wonder how many animals have been put down over the past 20 years? I shudder to think. It makes one wonder if the owners care about them at all.

At the end of the day it’s like many so-called sporting fixtures, it’s all down to money and to hell with the outcome.

It would be interesting to hear comments from the RSPCA on this issue. If this race is allowed to continue no doubt more horses will die. The only way to prevent this is to stop this barbaric race now.
