Petition text

New mayor Bill de Blasio announced he is considering banning horse-drawn carriages once he is installed in office, in January 2014.

While we believe people involved in the business will be dealt a huge blow and that Central Park horse-drawn carriages represent a hot destination for tourists, we cannot stop thinking about the horrible conditions in which these poor horses live. For instance, it is quite cruel for the horses to wander through the city every day. In addition, stalls lack even the most basic space horses need for a healthy life: for example, horses are kept in stalls of about 60 square feet, which is less than half of what experts recommend.

This petition has been initiated in order to show our support for the mayor’s decision to ban horse-drawn carriages! So if you believe horses have suffered enough, please join our cause and sign the petition!
