Horse Drawn Carriages

Horse-drawn carriages an environmental hazard?

HORSE TALK EQUINE NEWS AND VIEWS, New Zealand - June 1, 2007

Hot and humid days in New York are highlighting the environmental issues surrounding horse-drawn tourist carriages.

Last Saturday supporters of the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages gathered in the city to draw attention to their cause - and were surprised at the odor of horse waste in Central Park.

"Saturday was so hot and humid that the smell of horse waste on Central Park South was overwhelming," a spokesman said.

"It is beyond my understanding how the people who live on this high priced boulevard - or those who dine in the outdoor restaurants - put up with this. In plain English - it stinks!"

The exhaust fumes from tour buses unloading and loading passengers also drew attention: "The buses pull into the hack line and discharge not only passengers but harmful diesel exhaust fumes."
