Horse Sport Ireland statement on RTÉ Investigates documentary

  • 12 June 2024, 23:00

Horse Sport Ireland unequivocally condemns the practices surrounding the treatment and slaughter of horses, as outlined in this evening’s RTÉ Investigates documentary.

Horses hold a special place in the Irish nation’s collective heart, providing pleasure as pets and leisure horses, in therapeutic practices, on racetracks, and in arenas around the country.

There is absolutely no place in society for the mistreatment of horses, or any other animals, nor is there for the use of animals for any criminal intent.

Horse Sport Ireland welcomes a full investigation into the deeply troubling issues highlighted by the programme, and will offer its full assistance to any such investigation.
