Countless horses suffer every year in the horse drawn carriage business. Forced to work for hours on end despite dangerous road conditions and blistering heat, many horses suffer painful and sometimes fatal injuries.

As a horse advocate and activist, my priority is to save them from any mistreatment, abuse, illegal roundup or death by slaughter. I read this petition (and another like it) and while, in principle, the intention is a good one, there is absolutely NO provision in it that provides for what will happen to the horses if/when they do away with the carriages. It is foolish to believe they will retire them to live out their lives in a green pastures...not when there is $$$ at stake. It is a safer bet that once they no longer provide income for the owners, they will be sold to kill buyers for slaughter. Believe me, anyone who would work a horse inhumanely would not give a hoot about what happens to it after it is no longer bringing in the bucks and earning its keep. I would love to see a petition that protects these horses beyond the adverse conditions presented herein and provides a solution that does not lead to slaughter. THAT one I would sign. I cannot sign this as written for reasons stated above. This issue needs to be looked at closely to come up with a solution that benefits all concerned or it will not work.

Judy, your point is well taken. If you post a petition dealing with humane treatment for horses, or rework this one I will proudly sign it and share it. Thank you for opening our eyes. Admittedly, I looked at it and thought it was a good idea. I will look again, and address a letter to the officals as well in Sacramento.
CPR for the animals
if not now, when?

Mari, this issue kept me awake last night. Most of my spare time is spent working against “illegal” roundups of our wild horses by the BLM, saving retired race horses from slaughter, and the plight of our wolves, but I think this cause is something that should be added to my list. There has to be a solution that would stop abusive practices while ensuring the protection of these horses from the slaughterhouse. Going to look on this.
