Many people don't realize that Atlanta, Georgia is home to a booming carriage horse industry. While we are tempted to envision romance, green pastures and joyful rides when we think about horse carriages, reality is quite different.

We ask that you please respond to our CALL FOR ACTION. Contact the Georgia Department of Agriculture Equine Division and the Department of Taxicabs and Vehicles for Hire demanding that they increase inspections and perform their enforcement duties. The horses deserve better. They certainly deserve no less.

Short, concise and civil email sent. This is the 21st century and horse-drawn anything in the midst of modern traffic should not continue or be condoned.

Noted and will email ASAP. Thank you for bringing to my attention Ginger and also to Deb S. for the forward.
New York City banned it's horse carriages- some people still think it is romantic, but that would have to be in a park these days, and there is not where nearby most parks for the horses to be cared for. Almost all cities have too much traffic for horse drawn carriages.
