The first casualty of the 2013 horse 'jumps' racing season occurred last week. A veteran horse, Scenic Buzz, was killed by owners at the Australian Sandown race after falling on his neck. The horse took the fall at the course's very last hurdle.

signed. It's not like horses like jumping hurdles for fun. It's all about the "skill" and "mastery" of human over beast. It's all about the rider, and the trainer....not the horse. I'm sure the horse would rather be out in the pasture living a horse life.
It's once again.....all about power.

Jumping races are to entertain man at the risk and probability to hurt or maim these magnificent horses who serve us at risk to their lives. Can mankind do anything positive for animals by putting their needs and right to life ahead of our own? noted and signed thanks Cher

I wish the petition photo was of jumps racing and not of show jumping! The show jumping photo makes the petition lose credibility, as if the signers are clueless. Also, I don't agree with the wording regarding the owners killing the horse. The horse suffered a catastrophic injury and was euthanized - that's why jumps racing should be banned. I hope the petition writer corrects the errors to give the petition credibility. Thanks, Cher.

Signed. The horses that are injured or start losing will end up being cruelly slaughtered. End all forms of horse racing. This is not entertainment, it is all about ego and bragging rights.

What i have against steeple chasing is the height of the jump and the length of the race, the race could be over two miles, and this is up and down hill, and over all these huge jumps. I do believe that in hurdle racing the jumps are made of brush and that the horse can run through them if he is tired. but two miles of galloping and jumping is going to produce fatalities, there is no way to avoid it. That to me, is my biggest complaint, and it happens, there is no denying it, too long and too high - horses are not machines!.

I signed the petition and received the letter that I've pasted below from the Minister for Recreation and Sport under Minister of Tourism in Adelaide South Australia. Please give it a look and send on a letter or email as I'm going to do. I've never had such an interested and gracious response and this is a great opportunity.

From: MTOUR:Minister Leon Bignell Date: 4/23/2013 2:03:59 AM
To: Undisclosed recipients:

Thank you for your correspondence regarding jumps racing events in South Australia.

I appreciate that this is an issue about which many people feel very strongly and I am interested in accurately gauging public opinion about jumps racing.

Many of the emails addressed to my office on this matter appear to be automatically generated and do not contain enough information to enable a proper response.

For this reason, I would be very grateful if you would take the time to either write a letter to me at Level 12, Roma Mitchell House, 136 North Terrace, Adelaide SA 5000 or email to ministerleonbignell@sa.gov.au and include your name and address for my response.

Your correspondence and personal information would of course remain confidential.

Yours sincerely

Leon Bignell MP

Minister Tourism
Minister for Recreation and Sport
