This book evaluates the status quo of integrity management within sports that involve horses worldwide. Sports governing bodies and international sports federations are very powerful organisations within their sphere and the governance of these sports has created a hegemony which does not necessarily serve the interests of those engaged in sport, rather those who ‘rule’ sport. This book investigates the question of whether cheating is discouraged and fair play rewarded, both to an adequate degree.
