After years of campaigning and public opposition - the horse racing industry has finally published the findings of the Whip Consultation Steering Group. This body was formed to assess the responses to the public consultation on the whip and to propose any recommendations that may go before the British Horse racing Association (BHA) Board.
The action the BHA has announced is extremely disappointing. The British racing industry need to recognise that beating a horse with a whip is unacceptable in 2022.
Use our template to write to your MP, urging them to reach out to the BHA expressing the will of their constituents to ban the use of the whip in racing.
