The Kentucky Derby is a horse race sport that started in 1875. It is among the most popular sporting events in the world. The event is held for two days and involves well fed horses running for 1.25 miles. Initially, the race was hosted in busy market streets before a course was established.
Like other sporting actions, horse racing has its own rules guiding the participants and in most instances the race is mainly guided by betting rules. In addition, the contestants have to be in special outfits like the headgear, saddles and stirrups during the race. Horse racing has had recognized sportsmen and women since its inception. The various levels of races include maiden, claiming and allowance races.
The various outfits won during the racing are used diversely. Each is used to make sure there are no risks besides guaranteeing comfort for both the horse rider and the horse. The rider sits on the saddles fixed firmly on the back of the horse. The saddle must be well-fitted to avoid friction on the back of the horse which might cause it injury.
The stirrup is used to hold the feet on both sides of the saddle. Stirrups are of different designs with each designer considering safety. They offer the rider stability as they act as foot rests. However, if not properly designed, stirrups can be a menace. They could cause serious injuries in case the rider falls and the feet get stuck.
Advocates of animal rights have called upon stakeholders to increase safety precautions. They have in the past held many meetings with different types of stakeholders and huge progress towards achieving this goal is being made. With time, adequate measures will have been put in place to guarantee security of all the participants.
When entering the competition, contenders have to start from lower levels before graduating to senior levels such as the Kentucky Derby. Although horse racing is widely admired by thousands of fans, it comes with many risks. Injuries and even deaths have been reported of both humans and horses.
