Whips Will Soon Be Outlawed In Australia Harness Racing

Breaking News!

The use of whips will soon be OUTLAWED in Australian harness racing — a voluntary move in response to “compelling evidence that society will not tolerate continued cruelty toward animals.” Jockeys in Australia’s horse racing industry and in other counties continue to beat exhausted horses in an attempt to make them run beyond their physical limit. This is a great start in Australia and to encourage other countries to do the same! Speak up against horse abuse by calling on a total ban of whips and hopefully horse racing completely!
