The political influence of the animal liberation movement clearly is growing in Australia. It now appears that thoroughbred jumps racing is on the verge of being banned in those states where it remains and the use of whips on horses in all kind of races is to be severely curbed. Next, I expect, will be an effort to stop equestrian events being held over fences for there is really no difference between a steeplechase around a race course and the jumping component of one of those three day events at which Australian equestrians have been so successful at recent Olympic Games.
