Who Speaks for the Horses in Battle Over Carriages?

January 17, 2014 | Horse Carriages

The New York Times

Excerpt:

Edita Birnkrant, the New York director of Friends of Animals, likened the horses’ working conditions to prison.

“They are shackled into their carriages, pulling through streets of a chaotic unnatural environment and go back to their cells,” she said. “They need the ability to graze and roam freely. They never get that in New York. They live a life of total confinement, day after day.”

Absolutely, these horses require turnout and ability to lie down, roll and breath clean air . They cannot be our prisoners to a monotonous life designe d by someone treating them like a money making commodity.

Thank you for taking up your cause for the Carriage horses. I am from New York City and have always felt that those horses were imprisoned. I am sure that you will face adversity in your endeavor however at the very least your fight will bring their voice into the consciousness of people.
