The Bristol County Renaissance Faire provides a wonderful experience for individuals and families, including live entertainment and rides. However, some of the attractions include live animals brought to the faire for human entertainment. The pony ride is one such attraction. Ponies are shackled to revolving trusses by head harnesses all day long and are not able to lie down or move freely. They are working all day and their "breaks" consist of not working for a few minutes and drinking water. Horses are smart creatures who should not be kept confined all day shackled to a post. And for what? To have kids ride on them for a few minutes of fun and posing for a picture?

The faire is unique and amazing on its own and has endless opportunities for adventure and entertainment—this sad pony ride does not contribute anything to the faire, except perhaps in deterring caring individuals from attending so as to not witness such cruelty. Please remove the pony show and all live animal attractions at the Renaissance Faire!
