Ask your MP to support a ban on the whip in horse racing!

Please ask your MP to urge the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) to ban the use of the whip in horse racing.

The BHA is currently undertaking a review into the whip, so this is the perfect time for your MP to add their voice to all those calling for a ban.

A public opinion poll in 2018 found that 68% of respondents oppose the use of the whip in racing. When only including those who expressed a view, this figure rose to 83%.

Horses are the only animals who may be beaten in public in the course of entertainment. Please take action now and help us put a stop to this barbaric practice.
