    The grand national is beyond cruel. The amount of horses that die in the process is sickening.

    I can never justify any animal cruelty. I hate this sport it’s all revolved around money no consideration for the horses welfare. It really upsets me.

    Horses die on the race track all the time, sometimes if there in very bad condition they put a curtain around the horses and shoot them.
    Jockeys see horses as replaceable, if their horses pass away, to them it doesn’t matter because they’ll get another one.
    If someone sees, say for example someone whipping a dog the RSPCA or another animal investigator will give a punishment to the person, but for jockeys it perfectly fine to whip a horse to get it to go faster just for their happiness. To hurt an animal deliberately is illegal and whipping a horse can cause pain and suffering.
    Horses are often on drugs, some illegal and some are legal, horses should live a happy drug free life but they are given prohibited steroids and much more.
    Former race horses who have retired are sent to slaughter houses after spending years being pushed to do something which is dangerous for them, they get sent to be slaughtered when their not good enough anymore.
    Horses are made to race when their too young.
    Its all about money, there not bothered about the horses well being its all about earning the money they want.
