    I cannot believe this ban has not gone into effect already. Pulling carriages around all day and living in a stall all night is not natural for a horse. Dont let anyone try to tell you otherwise.

    Donny, thank you for this documentary and your compassionate spirit. I heard your recent interview on our hen house. We need more people in the world like you.

    Do carriage horses in New York City get injured more often than in other places? Has any research been done? When horses are banned from the streets, will they run free over the fields? Is a inhumane treadment for horses also unfair to horses? When a horse dies on Broadway, it will sureley get more attention from bystanders and press than on a farm, where most of them die.

    Kudos to Donny Moss for a brilliant exposé of this barbaric, outdated, cruel industry. Horse-drawn carriages need to banned, period.

    No possible compromise? Why can’t we simply isolate the horses and stables to Central Park, without subjecting them to NYC traffic? The park is a more natural, albeit man-made, environment. I mean there’s already a zoo in there, what’s the big deal to add some stables?

    To those that want to see the horse drawn carriage industry banned, I say, please don’t be put off by those saying “let’s put things in perspective…”, drawing attention to the much worse animal abuses going on. Yes, ofcourse there are and will continue to be much worse abuses perpetrated against our brothers and sisters…but there are people fighting their corner too, believe me. Do we turn our backs on child prostitution and slavery because there are more deserving cases such as paedophilia going on? No, ofcourse not. No logic there at all. Exactly the same should apply to the animals.

    That was th most stupid thing Ive ever seen!

    Keep up the good work. More horses are needed at the slaughter house. Darn carriage businesses are cutting into profits. If you can get them banned, more horses will be available for slaughter and their meat harvested. One note of interest, stop hitting the horses and killing them on the street. The law requires that the animal walk across the scale on its own for meat consumption. They can’t do that when their dead. Again, thank you for supporting the slaughter houses by pushing to ban animals.

    Many valid points made pro and con. I don’t know if the horses in the video were abused or not. Animals get abused in the country as well. My hope is that at some point in time that an abuser will get his just reward. I would like to see the horses in their environment doing their work in the country.

    We have this in Philadelphia too. It’s cruel and dangerous. I can’t believe anything thinks it’s okay to hitch a horse to a carriage in an urban area. It’s ludicrous.
