Carriage Horses in New York

Carriage horses live and breathe in congested traffic and automobile exhaust. At the end of their shift, they are penned up in small stalls that provide little space for movement or comfort. New York City is often thought of the place to go for a carriage ride, especially around Central Park. The joy the riders experience does not carry over to the horses pulling their carriages. Urge New York City Mayor Bloomberg to set an example for other cities where carriage horses live lives of deprivation and degradation; urge him to shut down the horse carriage industry in his city.
