Video Appears To Show Animal Abuse By NYC Horse Carriage Industry « CBS New York
Public safety isn't talked about enough. Horses left unattended, children standing in front of or almost under carriage is terrifying if you understand horses. Horses are fight or FLIGHT animals. In the crowded, noisy city flight is their only choice when scared. It is dangerous for everyone including the horses.
Horses don't belong in traffic. Don't believe people when they tell you we are against all "use" of horses or all cariage driving. That is a LIE. Many of us who work to ban carriage horses from city streets are what one would call "horse people". That is how we know it is wrong.
Please don't hire a horse drawn carriage in the city.
