    I can not imagine this hangs around much longer with the cultural shift that is ongoing. I dont have a problem with riding/racing the horse, but the thing is they whip the FUCK out of them to make them go faster. Thats literally animal slavery.

    No rights, property of your master
    Whipped hard as fuck to work harder


    Imagine how many times the poor things are whipped between all the races and also training.

    They wouldn't get whipped if they would just run faster.

    We have a public holiday for a horse race in our state in Australia, it ain't getting banned here anytime soon.

    Horse Racing is the sport of the Ruling Class. No one will ever touch it. Rodeo's on the other hand....not so much. I could see that being banned at some point.

    I looked up how many times on average a horse is whipped in a race and found this:

    "Instead, Racing Australia updated its rules that limited the number of times a horse can be hit during a race from 10 to 5, but allowed horses to be flogged repeatedly in the last 100 metres of a race — when the horse is most tired — in a brutal effort to push the exhausted animal 'over the line'."

    for fucks sake, man

    holy shit. mind=fucking blown

    I think its actually weird it exists in the first place.
    I wonder how many other animals they tried to ride and race before settling on horses.
    Id like to see that documentary.

    I've been for freeing all the horses ever since I saw the Last Jedi.

    Kids should still sweep the stables though.

    I think the current rule limits whip use to 5 during the race before the 100m mark, and only every other stride in the last 100m. These rules get broken all the time though, there's only a fine and it's not really substantial enough.

    I'm sure things will change when a jockey whips the shit out of a horse and wins a really big race, there'll be an outcry and the whip will get banned.

    Like fighting bulls, these animals tend to get a better life than 99% of animals on Earth.......not that I support either.

    They should use miniature horses and use a mace instead of a whip.

    Those zoo's that get tourists to take photos, or ride elephants are even worse.
    Dancing bears - with those large nose rings.

    Humans taking advantage of animals is nothing new.

    Hoping it goes by the wayside just like the circus. It is 2020 and we have video games and free porn; there is no reason to turn to animal abuse for our entertainment with such superior alternatives at our disposal.

    Word, its crazy to think about how big of a thing that used to be and how its just totally died out.
    I remember older people actually being really into it and it being a big deal when the circus came to town.
    Little by little they just picked away at it.
    Same with freakshows.

    This.

    Owning a horse is part of showing you are rich and have class. Owning an award winning horse further strokes the ego of rich people that own them.

    Not going to get banned just because poor people whine about it.

    EDIT:
    Zoo, Circus and another animal "entertainment", as mentioned itt by other posters, will go first because they are catered to average Joes. Just look at sports hunting in Africa, they paid large sums of money to kill an supposedly "old" animal because it "saves" the species because of that. What logic is that?

    I can't stand horse racing because it's not about sport or racing, it's gambling. There are no horse racing fans, only gambling fans.
