BHS statement regarding Mark Todd | TikTok video whipping a horse

Gemma Stanford, Director of Welfare at The British Horse Society said;

“The British Horse Society supports the horse and rider in all equine disciplines under the condition that the highest welfare and safety standards are adhered to at all times. The welfare of the horse should always be paramount. Riders at this level have an increased responsibility as they are role models and should also be setting an example for the next generation coming through our sport. The behaviour displayed by Mark Todd was completely unacceptable and should be thoroughly investigated.”
