Horses are the only animals who may be beaten in public for entertainment. Animal Aid has campaigned for many years to ban the whip from racing in Britain and has released this short viral film – created by Environment Films – to launch an international initiative for a global ban on the whip. The international movement includes the following groups: . RSPCA, Animals Australia, Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses [of Australia], Vier Pfoten [of Germany], Animal Rights Action Network (ARAN), National Animal Rights Association (NARA) [of the Irish Republic] and L214 [of France]. Also part of the international campaign is Concern for Helping Animals in Israel (CHAI), an organisation that has campaigned, successfully so far, to prevent the introduction of horse racing to Israel.
