Horse Drawn Carriages


NEW YORK POST - By Erin Calabrese and Dan Kadison

July 5, 2007 -- A frightened carriage horse bolted from its driver early yesterday and collided with a taxi on Central Park South - slashing its leg and sending a cabby to the hospital.

"I saw [the horse] coming right at us and he just ran right into the cab," said motorcyclist Tony Zappetti.

"I don't know what spooked him. I just threw my bike down and tried to get out of the way."

"I'm going to have nightmares about horses tonight," Zappetti quipped before driving off on his trampled bike.

The cabby, whose car sustained significant front-end damage, was treated for injuries at New York Hospital. The horse, a 12-year-old gelding named Bud, suffered several gashes on his right hind leg, but was able to walk back to the stables on West 52nd Street by himself, said Joseph Pentangelo, ASPCA assistant director.
