Grand National Sporting Event. ? or not

Horses most certainly enjoy racing.  The whip shouldn't  hurt the horse if used correctly and there are strict rules regarding the use.  I'd say the horse that wins the Grand National is the bigger hero than the winning jockey.  There can be no doubt that Red Rum is the biggest hero that has won the Grand National. The greatest combination of horse and jockey  both being heroes has to be Aldaniti and Bob Champion.  Also Rachel Blackmore became an hero for female sportspeople last year when she was the first female jockey to ride the winning horse.

Perhaps someone should jump on your back and horse whip you.

its no way a cruel sport these hoses are pampered and loved by owners trainers and riders and when the horses are finished they get retired out not put down.

 

Yeh right,  pampered and loved after a fall at beechers brook ect, more like shot after the fall lames them and then sent to the glue factory ect. :roll:

When a beloved animal of mine jumps from too high a wall and starts limping, or gets hit by a car and may have broken its leg, I immediately reach for the shotgun 🙄

A little perspective.

 

Man (so sue me! Lol) is currently the animal at the top of the food chain.

 

Trillions of cows, chickens, pigs, sheep and fish,  are being killed every day in giant slaughterhouses, to give him his burgers, kebabs, fish and chips, chinese, bacon and eggs, and Sunday roast.

 

And for the vegans, untold trillions of insects are chemically fumigated by industrial pesticides, to keep his veggies growing.

 

Abortion kills millions of viable humans.

 

At what point does some life actually become  of value, and who's to decide?

You'll have to ask your local priest, imam or rabbi to find out what he's saying these days.

 

Let us know!

If an horse could talk it would probably say something like,  get off my back and walk you lazy sod or I'm not jumping that fence I could end up killing my self or whip me again and I'll smash your face in.  :hihi:
