I posted a link to the Blethering below on our Facebook page and, to my surprise, it has attracted nearly 13,000 views and many “likes” and “shares”. In addition I have received countless e mails on the subject.
One this morning came from a Nick Bennett of ‘Nick Bennett Racing’. Not racehorses but speedway and Nick points out that they have had a similar system in speedway for years with a cord attached to the rider’s wrist to cut the engine if he falls off, preventing a bike with open throttle careering into the crowd. It is obvious really and should be with a blindfold on a horse too.
