Urge These Companies to Stop Sponsoring the Grand National in 2025

The Grand National is a national disgrace. Will you urge these companies to withdraw their support of this shameful spectacle in which horses are forced to participate?

The Grand National is one of the most dangerous horse races in the UK. Forty skittish horses are forced to run over 4 miles at breakneck speed while tackling 30 obstacles, including drops, ditches, and very high fences. The course is designed to be demanding and extreme – which makes it treacherous and often deadly.

How Dangerous Is the Grand National?

Sixty-five horses have died as a result of racing at the Grand National since 2000, and countless others have been injured. At Becher’s Brook, aptly nicknamed the “killer fence”, horses have slammed face-first into the ground and collided with each other, breaking necks, backs, and legs.

Horses who can’t run fast enough are often discarded like used betting slips. BBC One’s Panorama: The Dark Side of Horse Racing – which features undercover footage from animal protection group Animal Aid – revealed that thousands of horses formerly used for racing from the UK and Ireland were sent to abattoirs every year.
