Horse Drawn Carriages

Letter to the Editor on NYC Carriage Horses

The carriage horse named Smoothie won't be vacationing at Mr. McKeever's six acre farm in Pennsylvania this year, though-will she? Her last gallop wasn't racing the wind across green fields, it was a terrified run down the hard streets of New York. Her last gasp? Not of fragrant spring grass, but of car exhaust. The last thing she heard? Screaming human voices, blaring car horns-and of course, there was the sudden, startling sound of the amplified drum that started it all. Started her last gallop.

Horses don't belong on the streets of New York City. Some things are simple. This is one of them.
