Love and respect for racehorses is at the very heart of everything British racing stands for; thousands of stable staff across the country pour their heart and soul into caring for their horses.
In light of the shocking posts seen on social media recently, the wider racing community has gathered behind two hashtags, #LoveTheRacehorse and #ForTheLoveOfHorses, to show their deep affection for the thoroughbred.

#lovetheracehorse Let’s flood social media with the love we have for the horse. I, for one, think we are lucky to be part of their lives. Owners, breeders, trainers and stable staff alike, we are privileged… this picture sums it up for me. 🥰🥰🥰🥰 pic.twitter.com/19FYJA0UbK

I for one am LOVING that #LoveTheRacehorse is filling my timeline after a tough day for the sport. This bunch of future racehorses also put a smile on my face today @NewtownStud #racehorsewelfare #FoalPhotos2021 pic.twitter.com/2TZIgiIIvc

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. The light: #fortheloveofhorses & #RacehorseWelfare which we’ll continue to showcase on @itvracing pic.twitter.com/5uumHS8TyJ
