Sport

We see horses’ involvement in sport as just one of many facets of our unique and evolving partnership.

Regulators

We work constructively with regulators in placing the welfare of the horse first, before commercial or competitive considerations.

Use of the whip in racing

The whip has a role to play in keeping a horse and rider safe, but we question its use in racing to make a horse run faster.

Horse welfare in sport

When horses are used in sport responsibility for their welfare rests on the shoulders of those who own, train, ride and care for them.

Life after competition

All sports horses will reach a point in their career when they can no longer compete. At this point their welfare can often be put at risk.
