I have accidentally eaten horse due to language issues when traveling abroad. I thought it was beef, and after tasting it, I thought it was the worst beef I ever tasted. And when I found out I was eating horsemeat, I hastily excused myself and rushed to the loo! I wouldn't eat dog, or cat, or some other animals either.
But horse- how can you love and cherish an animal and then eat him/her?

Must say I was startled to hear HRH suggesting we think outside the square to that extent.
I'd never eat horse-meat; I bought it once, suppressing my feelings, for dog-food but my Labradors wouldn't eat it and that's extraordinary for unfussy Labradors.
Never again.

In my opinion you cannot. In the worst depth of the recession I had to put down the absolute best horse of my career as he was not well and 24. I had the choice , As I could not put up the $5k to properly burry him, to either send him to the land fill or the hounds . So sad.

HORRIBLE rush hour traffic though, for a city of only 30,000 people. It took us 3 hours to drive the last 120 miles home from the cottage this summer. I doubt Princess Anne has any interest in folk music though. Too bad, because the auditorium of the local opera house is named after him.
So who is the greatest folksinger of all time?

She did not say equestrians should eat horse meat. She just pointed the money generated by selling a horse for it's meat could fund better horse care near the end of its life.

There are people who will buy horse meat. But she is not trying to force anyone to eat anything.

Doesn't make sense to me - fund better horse care near the end of it's life by knocking off another horse to sell the meat? Silly idea!

Go read the article - she's certainly more eloquent that I am about it. What do you care anyway if you don't have to eat it. Silly idea.

If you have travelled in Europe and eaten in restaurants you most likely have eaten horse meat.

My dad was just in England, Spain and Switzerland on business and he didn't say anything about horse meat.

Read the article and HRH was no more eloquent than you were! What do I care? Not a question I feel you are entitled to ask, but seeing as you did, I would say that I eat meat and care about where it comes from and therefore feel obliged to comment on matters affecting the health and welfare of animals. I still don't understand - nor have I had it explained -how creating a horsemeat trade in the UK will improve on the overall care of horses. Could AdmirerUS or the Princess Royal assist?
I'm off for a crocodile burger.....................

OK, have it your way. Anne is blithering mad and has not put thought into this. Clearly she does not care about horses. And as a royal, how dare she ever state her opinion? Does that make you feel better?

Just because he didn't say anything doesn't mean he didn't eat it - as some other food, especially in 'stew' type dishes.

I found Anne's comment rather strange, particularly as she likes horses, but I can sort of understand where her "it will give horses a better life" point (it was something along those lines) is coming from - if you're breeding an animal for food then you'd give it a good diet and living area. There are some horses in the UK that are badly treated.

I think it would take Britons awhile to get used to horse meat if Anne's idea was introduced, because it's not our tradition/custom. I would imagine that most people from France, Belgium (IIRC) and Italy would get used to the idea as horse meat is eaten in those countries. Another reason is that some people from the UK might be put off by eating horse meat since the horse meat scandal which occurred earlier this year.

Well, it's a sponsor (since the 1950s I think). Never look a gift horse in the mouth
