for sure Kathy, and the abuse goes on tenfold in the Amish community, it's just an acceptable mode of transport for them, it's obvious the horses are mistreated, left to stand for hours in the hot sun after hauling a load of people, then back home again. hopefully the movie will wake up the rest of our country, ty Brenda

Thank you Brenda, for all you do for horses. We are fighting this in NYC and it is an uphill battle, as the mayor himself supports this wretched abuse.

These practices are revolting ! Those who support them, those who live on this unacceptable trade, those who use are no better. These are zeros. These are cynical.

They also have them in Philadelphia.But they have changed the rules for the sake of the horses.In the summer and winter,depending on the weather and temp,they might not be on the streets.I don't know if there is a passenger limit though.But local activists are fighting.YES!!!!They are only aloud in south Philly and on one way streets.

I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW PEOPLE CAN SEE THIS HORRIBLE ABUSE AS BEING OK--A LITTLE COMMON SENSE SHOULD SHOULD TELL ANYBODY IT IS NOT OK--THE HORSES ARE PITIFUL! THE MAYOR IS A DISGRACE TO APPROVE OF SUCH ABUSE!

Noted and thanks Brenda.

Selfish and greedy people with no respect or compassion for the horses, exploiting them for their financial gain at the expense of the well being of the horses.

I emailed the NYC Lord Mayor requesting a total ban on Horse drawn carriages, on your other associated story yesterday.
