Blinders

I was just sent this video about horses that are used for carriage rides in New York City. Incidentally, I went by a horse show today and saw some horse rescue groups. Some of the horses were kept in such horrific conditions that they are now blind. One was tied to a stall for so long that even though it is no longer tied by its neck, apparently it doesn't know it. You can visit the Horse rescue group at Horsenet They also have a bunch of cats on the premises, almost all of which are already sterilised..

Certainly time to ban horse carriage rides especially in traffic mad NYC.Overworking one horse pulling a heavy weight carriage.
If then, hope these unemployed horses won't ended up as horse meat like those unemployed premarin & race track industry horses.

Sad that some humans still wanted to stick to trades that makes money out of animals.Like elephants,moon bears,horses....

There are Pencheron horse carriage ride in Stanely Park and other horse rides toursim in Victoria,BC. We never wanted such rides. There are bicycles and our own bus '11' alternatives.

Troubling that horses are still so much abused in modern days. They contributed so much to help mankind through sweat hard work and obedience.
