Call for a new, independent regulator to help race horses!


In 2021, a record number of 220 horses were killed as a result of racing in Britain, and 258 jockeys committed a total of 472 whip offences – the majority of which were for whipping their horses even more times than is already permitted. 

New figures show that, even after Animal Aid’s exposé of race horses being sent to the abattoir, 1,210 (55%) of a total of 2,217 horses slaughtered in England and Ireland in 2021 held passports from the British and Irish racing industries. 

Please take two minutes to fill in this message to your MP, urging the government to intervene and take action to help race horses. Thank you.
