Let the Carriage Industry Build a Stable in Central Park for Our Horses

Nobody who likes to visit the horses around Central Park likes to see them fighting their way through traffic on their way home to the stable.  It is an unnecessary risk for them on a daily basis.  Many horse-lovers support a total ban of horse-drawn carriages in New York City for reasons like that.  Despite their good intentions, many people who voice an opinion don't fully realize the implications a ban would have. If the industry dies in New York, thousands more horses in the future will leave the auction block for the slaughter houses, instead of heading to contented lives being patted and adored by dozens of people every day and living in loose-box stalls after work. Boarding horses in the Park will reduce dangerous street time, get them living closer to nature, possibly offer a small area for weekly turnout, and provide an additional source of revenue for the Conservancy resulting from monthly boarding fees.  Not to mention preserve the integrity and longevity of a unique and fanciful New York City tradition.

      There are so many petitions and organizations trying to stop the slaughter of our national treasure the horse. Please post or get the number 202-224-3121 out to your people to call to get the number of their congressman to put pressure on them to not slaughter our greatest national treasure the horse since without them we wouldnt be where we are today. Signatures are all well and fine but they dont have the same impact as calls do. Thank you for your help to put pressure to pass HR2966 and reverse the horrible slaughter. Our horses should have never been put on the menu and slaughtered for food. Thank you for your time.

      These precious horses look exhausted and dehydrated just for our amusement. These are animals that deserve to be treated with RESPECT.
