Stop the use of the Kurtsystem for training racehorses in Berkshire and prevent it becoming commonplace
Why is this important?
The Kurtsystem is a £20 million machine designed by 'rollercoaster engineers'! Young horses (30 at a time) are harnessed in forcing the horses to gallop at 30mph! Horses are as individual as you or I. No two horses will gallop at the same speed on any given day. Being harnessed in with no way of escaping this contraption, the horse is given no choice but to gallop, how can this be ethical or in the best interest of the horse? Lets not kid ourselves, this is all about making more money out of defenceless animals. This is an industry that is already worth over 3 billion pounds!! Whilst at present the general manager of the Kurtsystem claims the machine is only used on young racehorses pre-training to make them stronger, how long will it be before we see all racehorses being trained in such contraptions? It's barbaric and needs to be stopped.
