Horse Racing. The sport of Kings? Or the sport of Corpses. This is a super big controversy in the world and I've been meaning to make a post about it. I am going to try and keep any graphic things for the videos that I will like below. I will advise you to watch at your own risk, you might throw-up.
Imma just cut to the point. I. DO. NOT. SUPPORT. HORSE. RACING. AND. I. NEVER. WILL. And yes, I do understand that some people do care for their horses but MOST don't. And those people that do care for their horses, are still support the racing industry. The horse racing industry is responsible for 1000 horse deaths, JUST on the race track. And estimated few hundred to a thousand additional horses are killed in training (Yearlings and 2-3 yr olds), or are sent to slaughter. Not to mention they DO 100% use a "cocktail" of drugs to masks the horses pain, so that they are able to run through the pain, when they should be recovering and resting, leaving them even MORE prone to injuries. Not to mention the over-use of whips. It has been proven that horses have thinner skin and have more nerve ending in their skin. (More sensitive skin)Horse ARE literally run to death, proof has literally been given. Not to mention the fact that Jokeys have been caught using illegal shocking devices. I provide proof to all of these statements in the videos and in the article.
Horse skin vs Human skin There are a lot of things I do not feel okay-with sharing here, so I will link videos and articles down below. I do advise extreme caution when watching the videos they can get extremely graphic, (I even had a TikTok video taken down because it was too graphic and that wasn't even a bad part) and they do include mature language (swearing). I did leave a link to an article which is more family friendly.

Lastly, don't start arguing in the comments. I am not in the mood. It was extremely hard for me to watch these videos and make this post. I most likely will not be returning comments to prove my point I have put my proof. Everyone has their own opinion. This is mine.
