Is it ok to go watch a horse race? I mean without gambling, just to watch for entertainment. I heard that it may be an issue because the horses are in pain…
Without getting into any issues if this is the type of place for you to be visiting, or the correct type of entertainment. The fact thatthe hourse might be in pain is not an issue here. First of all you are not putting them in pain, because they are going to run no matter what. Secondly, the person hitting the hourse is doing so for his livelihood, which is permitted.
