Abstract

The use of whips in the racing industry continues to be a contentious issue. Despite this, until recently there has been little research in this area. Previous research on the use of whips in racing has been restricted to its role in race falls (Pinchbeck et al., 2004), the potential for the whip to injure (Mills & Higgins, 1996) and how the whip affects stride length (Deuel & Lawrence, 1988). This article reviews the research conducted on the use of whips in horse racing to date.
