Myer, Schwepps and Boag's Draught: Stop sponsoring horse racing

    1. Petition by

      Vegans Of Australia

Racehorses begin the suffer right from the start, they are separated from their mothers at an early age and thrown into training long before their body is anywhere near mature enough to handle it.Since running at high speeds over long distances is not natural to horses many will show resistance to conventional training methods and therefore pain and fear will be used to force them into submission.

Close to 18,000 racehorses are discarded each year because they are too slow or injured, they end up in knackeries or abbatoirs, turned into pet food or meat for human consumption.

This is no way to treat such beautiful animals, let Mysr, Schwepps and Boag's know that until they stop sponsoring the SAJC and all other racing clubs then you will not be supporting them by buyng their products/shopping at their store.

      I am what you might call horsey and I've had loads of fun with my soulmate Tweed,who has been with me for the last sixteen years. He's twenty now and semi retired, although you wouldn't think so!

      I hate the thought of race horses being ridden far too young; their limbs are not set and strong enough to cope with racing. They often break down, and more often than not they are finished before they start. Sold off to people who don't understand thoroughbreds. Or to the knackers yard. Or even to the bull ring to be gored. It's very few indeed that will get a decent retirement, they would have had to win some major races before that would happen.

      I have always hated the animal racing industry. It pains me that I have a friend whose father pays into it as co-owner of a few horses. These animals are used up, drugged, and thrown away if injured or old. It's barbaric.
