Let’s show the world that we want to see an end to the inhumane horse-drawn carriage trade. Stand together with the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages and animal-rights groups throughout the world, creating a movement in which cities and towns say “no” to horse-drawn vehicles, because horses came into the world for their own reasons.
