Description

Jumps racing is a huge part of the history of Australian racing. It is a sport which has moved grown men to tears and poetry and has created human heroes of horsemanship. But sadly, horses are required to jump over many tall fences at high speed, in a pack, while running long distances. As a result, jumps horses are highly susceptible to horrific falls, injuries and death. The humane solution is to ban jumps racing. This is the backstory to this painting titled "No Jumps Please".
