Jumps racing has proven to be deadly for horses and dangerous for jockeys. Horses are required to clear obstacles which are at least a metre high, in a pack, at speed, and over long distances.
Despite modifications to jumps and efforts to make racing safer, horses have continued to die. We believe jumps racing will never be made safe. We believe the time has come for jumps racing in South Australia to stop.
Tell politicians to ban jumps racing now.
It is time to let our politicians know that this so called ‘sport’ has no place in today’s society.
