Help writing an essay on horse racing
So for my english class I am writing an essay on wether horse racing in good or bad but I can't find much information so please can you find website for the following information:
HORSE RACING - ALLIANCE FOR ANIMAL RIGHTS (A.F.A.R.)
(for number of horses that had died)
All I could find was how many horses died. Hope this helps!
I just did an entire thread on this exact topic, you are welcome to go through it and use all of my sources. All the main points I made are referenced so you should be able to get the information easily and quickly.
This topic is one close to my heart!
Just a tip for writing such essays, try to always reference the source from which the information came from originally, so that you can be sure to be accurate i.e. don't just reference this thread and use all the information from it. I have absolutely no problem with you using all the information but I would hate for you to take what I said for granted - always check your sources!!
Thank you for the link do you know the website you got the graphs from
Yep, they were from the Jockey club website.
I didn't mean to sound overbearing when I mentioned quoting the original source but a lot of the things I wrote are heavily coloured by my own opinion and experiences and I would hate for that to influence someone elses opinion!
There is another article that I used that you can find later in the thread (in the last couple of pages I think) that you may also find useful which was a study into the causes and frequency of injuries to racehorses.
Oh and one last word - I would be very careful NOT to use any material provided by animal rights websites. I am sure they have good intentions but the information is usually inaccurate and biased.
Look for good, factual sources from reputable publications and/or websites.
Oh wow, dido! We're doing persuasive essays and the topic I chose was the racing of two-year olds before their growth plates secure. Kind of hard to find info on, I labored for weeks finding sites! Here's some of them, to save you the time:
http://legal-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Animal+abuse (i referenced this definition in saying racing 18month olds could be considered an act of animal cruelty)
thank you you both have probably saved me hours of surfing through pointless websites
