    And that would be fine!!!

    How many deaths of racehorses (caused due to an injury inflicted while racing) do you know of?
    If only a few, maybe name them...

    Eight Belles, Twist Bookie, Backlash, etc...

    How many ex-racehorses do you know? To clarify, horses that have now been retrained in a different discipline once their career has ended.
    A heck of a lot, both quarter and thoroughbred. I know a friend that just got one and is re-training her now.

    What discipline do you see most ex-racehorses retrained for?
    I've seen almost everything, but around here, mostly pleasure and eventing.

    Do you believe horse racing sould be continued? Or that it should be ended?
    Continue it. Horse racing isn't cruel; most of them that I know love to run. They should, however, use better training practices and start the horses under saddle later.

    If there was one thing you could change about the horse racing industry, what would it be?
    Breeding for conformation, not only speed, starting the horses later, less inbreeding, etc.

    If you own a off-the-track-Thoroughbred, feel free to tell me some of its background when it raced, why it retired, and what it does now, you don't have to, but it would be appreciated.

    I don't have one, but my trainer does. She was registered under 'Moon Landing' and had been raced five times I think. I'm not sure why she was sold though...

    That would be fine!!

    No, it wouldn't. Proper use of whips and crops is necessary to back up leg cues. Spurs are used in dressage to control the horse with a slighter touch of leg, not to poke them till they bleed.
