Agree with the sentiments but can't sign until I know more about the rules they want to bring in.
At the moment DEFRA are trying to limit the time horses spend travelling abroad. This can cause real problems for well looked after sports horses - like racehorses who ship by box to race in places like Germany and Italy. I'm producing statistics on how well British horses do when they travel by box to race abroad.
We want control over horses a) going for slaughter b) travelling in overcrowed lorries c) not doing regular stops for food and water.
A blanket ban will punish horse shippers/owners who do things responsibily.
