Tell NYC to Retire Carriage Horses to Sanctuary

  • by: Animal Advocates

Earlier this year, State Senator Tony Avella and Assemblywoman Linda Rosenthal called for a ban of horse-drawn carriages, saying the industry is antiquated and barbaric.

Used as a tourist attraction, the horses are exposed to extreme heat in the summer, and the harsh cold in the winter; and subjected to traffic collisions all year round.

We ask that you ban horse drawn carriages once and for all. Profits are never more important than human beings acting humanely. These horses never even have the chance to graze on grass naturally and are constanly exposed to noise pollution. If stress can kill a human, it can kill a horse.

Make this inhumane industry illegal, and retire carriage horses to a sanctuary where they can engage in natural equine behaviors.
