I never said racing wasn't a fulltime job, I said JUMPS RACING on it's own is not fulltime for the majority of people. Jumps racing only prolongs the inevitable, failed flat horses are going to get dogged anyway - BUT they do stand more of a chance being rehomed as a failed flat racer at 3 or 4 than a broken, failed jumps racer at 7 or 8 years. Giving horses a so called second chance at jumps doesn't cut back the number of horses dogged each year. Thats up to the breeders, less horses bred less horses dogged. Awareness also needs to be made to owners of racehorses etc, more organisations like the racehorse outplacement program will help rehome former raccehorses. Jumps racing does very little to stop failed flat horses from being dogged. All equestrian sports have their risks, racing has a huge risk to the lives of horses and humans but the risk of jumps racing is too high. Too many horses die, it's unacceptable. I know some of you won't agree with and thats fine, but do yourself a favour - do some research, the facts are there have a look.
