Urge Hershey Park to End Carriage Horse Rides
Hershey Park's Candylane and The Hershey Hotel offer carriage horse rides to their guests. Horses used in these operations often suffer from leg and hoof injuries as a result of the constant and repetitive pounding on hard pavement. The horses are typically forced to work long hours, in all weather extremes, only to be returned to a barren trailer to await the next days work.
We have received complaints that the horses used at the two Hershey locations are forced to work and stand for long periods in the rain and bitter cold and are tethered in trailers when "off duty."
Serious injuries and even deaths are not uncommon in the horse carriage industry when horses are spooked or carriages tip or collide with vehicles. As a result of both hazards to humans and the perils that the horses face, many cities have banned horse carriage operations.
Please contact Hershey to ask that it make the compassionate decision to eliminate horse carriage operations from its otherwise festive and enjoyable atmosphere:
