#ForTheLoveOfHorses - the Twitter hashtag uniting the world of horseracing
The racing world has been rocked in recent days by the revelation of an image showing trainer Gordon Elliott sitting on a dead horse on his gallops, while this week further footage involving amateur jockey Rob James circulated on social media.
Members of the racing community have come out in force on social media to showcase the love and affection they have for racehorses.
It’s been a dark few days for the sport. It’s makes me feel desperately sad for the many thousands who have total commitment & devotion to their horses.
