Equine Welfare

Nothing matters more to us than looking after the horses and jockeys.  We agree with recognised animal welfare organisations that horses have the right to a decent and fulfilling life.  Our role at our racecourse is to minimise any risk to horse and jockeys.

ARC is committed to the care of horses.  As a minimum, each course has:

  • Clear signage for horse movements
  • A post-race endoscope facility
  • A post-race horse monitor (to spot signs of distress or injury, and to action remedial steps)
  • Treatment boxes furnished to a high standard
  • A quality panel of veterinary surgeons and back-up team.

Lingfield Park Racecourse is licensed and regulated by the British Horseracing Authority (BHA).  The BHA sets and polices the standards for equine facilities and veterinary care at all racecourses in Great Britain.

The BHA also provides their own Veterinary Officer at each meeting to ensure that these strict standards are adhered to.  We also employ top class Veterinary Surgeons and deploy them around the track, the parade ring and the stable yard to ensure that a vet will be on the scene literally within seconds of an incident.

Our Veterinary Officer’s first priority after diagnosing any injury is to provide a calm environment to effectively treat the horse.  As soon as an injury assessment has been made, a horse ambulance will be called to the scene and will transport the horse back to the stable yard or to the local Equine Hospital, where further treatment can be undertaken.

Horseracing in Britain also has its own designated charity.  Retraining of Racehorses (RoR) is British Horseracing’s official charity for the welfare of horses who have retired from racing.  The role of Retraining of Racehorses (ROR) is:

  • To raise funds from within the Racing Industry to help support the charitable retraining and re-homing of former racehorses
  • Help provide facilities for the care, retraining and re-homing of former racehorses.
  • Promotes the adaptability of racehorses to other equestrian activities
  • To run a well established programme of competition sponsorship and clinics to educate and improve riders handling former racehorses.

The charity’s ultimate goal is to achieve a balance between the number of horses leaving Racing and the number of enthusiastic, and suitable, new homes where horses are placed.
