Drug abuse on horses could be reduced.
Stable staff know who do it but they want to keep their jobs (perhaps not at that stable) so they say nowt.
It’s a pity, with mobile phones able to record evidence, a few do not have the courage and support to spill the beans but would they be protected if they did?<br>I’m not sure they think they would.
The penalties are also derisory. Trainers make excuses and are not really held responsible unless it can be proved they were in attendance when the drug/s were administered. Ridiculous, as the horses are in their care and under their instructions.The rules need to change.
