I watched three quarters of the video and got sick and tired of the skewed outlook it portrayed.
First, the ban on mangana is NOT a racist decision. Any more than dog fighting, cock fighting, steer flipping and many other "sports" deemed to be cruel. I get sick and tired of people screaming racism every time they don't get their way.
Secondly, it is ridiculous to say that it is common for steeplechase races to start 14, have only four finish and have three die. I scream BS!. I have been to countless steeplchases and have not seen that. Yes, I have seen three horses die on XC (I have shown this discipline for over 40 years). Not too bad, IMO. I have also seen them die in a pasture almost as often.
Evaluna, if you feel the need to post such one-sided and nonsense videos, you might as well join PETA. They have plenty of videos for you to revel in.
I especially LOVE the part where the narrator says the horse enjoys it. Yeah, they can't love their owner but they can love being brutalized?
