    Women and men have been treated equally in other horse sports for decades. The way the horseracing industry gets excited over women jockeys is silly. Jockeys are jockeys. End of.

    Here’s to women showing support for other women. And people showing support for other people generally.

    Horses feel the whip and that it why it is used. You notice the effect more on a stationary horse or one which moving at a slow pace. After a crack they might scoot off or go sideways. When used appropriately it’s a useful tool to correct behavioural problems.

    Having done some competing myself and asked a tired horse to give its all I would like to see whip thresholds come down and harsher punishments imposed.

    I liked the emotion she showed towards her horse. It reminded me of how I felt on the odd occasion my horse and I did well at a competition. People have such love for these animals why not show it.

    “I’m not sure how many of you actually follow eventing, but riders in contention for the overall win actually do regularly give their mounts 1-3 backhanders after the last in the major competitions”

    I evented at international (FEI) level and this statement is untrue. As others have mentioned we had an incident last year of overuse of the whip which has had regulatory implications.

    Apart from the odd horse you don’t need a whip to make a horse gallop and jump natural obstacles.

    This is my experience. I mean no disrespect to those who have other views.

    I have done some eventing.

    The XC phase is a few miles over obstacles which are more complicated than a NH XC race. 9/10 you would complete without having to resort to the whip.

    ZENYATTA was a princess :heart:

    It is right that we tend to remember the beautiful AND talented ones. I will try to think of a beautiful but useless one!

    I think CRYSTAL OCEAN is worth a shot over 10f.

    He doesn’t have a great deal of stamina on the distaff side and does his best work at the 9-10f point.
