Horse drawn carriages constitute a danger to people in vehicles, on bicycles, and on foot. They impede the flow of traffic, particularly with respect to emergency vehicles. The horses are forced to work in dangerous, unhealthy and unnatural conditions.

Some of the cities that have banned horse-drawn carriages:

  • Barcelona Spain
  • Beijing China
  • Biloxi MSKenneth City FL
  • Broadway at the Beach SC
  • Camden NJ
  • Key West FL
  • Deerfield Beach FL
  • Guadalajara Mexico
  • Las Vegas NV
  • London England
  • Montreal Canada
  • Oxford England
  • Palm Beach FL
  • Panama City Beach FL
  • Paris France
  • Pompano Beach FL
  • Reno NV
  • Rome Italy
  • Salt Lake City UT
  • Santa Fe NM
  • Toronto Canada
  • Treasure Island FL

It is time for other areas where these industries currently exist (such as New York City) to move into the 21st century and take seriously its moral and ethical responsibility to these sentient beings while ensuring the safety of its citizens.

Surely as a civilized society, we must do no less.
