Five horses at the Cheltenham Festival were killed this year after only two days of racing. This catastrophe has caused the England festival to be watched very carefully by animal welfare organizations. Any type of horse racing can be tremendously

Signed, they might as well do car racing if they are going to treat horses like cars.

Even without reading this article, I think horse racing is a cruel and unnecessary sport. I despise this sport. Horses being whipped, being made to run faster. Ran into the ground for years. Too many horses breaking legs and having to be euthanized. I wish horseracing could be taken of the face of the planet. Noted and gladly signed.

I dont know why but Cheltenham races seem to always have terrible fatalities...I wonder why they have more there than anywhere else,are the steeple jumps too high and the races too long? What i find extremely strange is the Steeplechases in England - for a country that professes to love their horses, why do they make such grueling races? why must horses be forced to perform such arduous tasks? we wouldnt all be so against racing if it was fairer on the horses...after all, without the horse there would not be any races of any kind. The well being of the horse should be the top priority in any race.

Thanx Jim and Jill for your petition and comments. I think you must be right about the difficulty of the tasks Jill. Or, the other fatalities are never publicized. Either way, we need protection for our horses from frivolous danger. They are hurt easily enough w/o the excessive tasks and races.
