The carriage horse industry has been under fire for many years, and for good reason. The mean streets of NYC aren't exactly the ideal spot for these gentle giants to roam. Inching their way through traffic-congested streets of NYC day-in and day-out

I do not like this.

Years we have been trying to rescue those horses.

We shall continue.

Maybe this time we'll do it.

I signed but I worry about what will happen to the horses and even the carriage drivers. Things are very bleak out there, and to be honest when I have been in NYC I haven't seen any abuse by carriage drivers toward the horses. Then again, I do think it is abusive to put horses into traffic, even for a short time.

Done! If some of these people only knew when they were taking out there "SWEETIE" out for a ride it meant a "Death Sentence" sometimes for the horse....

Noted with EXTREME ANGER!

WTH are people thinking these days, or maybe they're just not. Horses deserve to live peacefully in a pasture where they can do what comes naturally to them. People are just to damnded selfish beyond belief....

Signed. Horses have no business there. Thanks Cher.

I also worry about the drivers, but I think maybe the city should should take initiative and train them for another line of work. It may not sound feasible or realistic but that's the only solution I can think of.
