Mayor Bill De Blasio: Save the horse drawn carriage rides in New York City

Stop your attack on the horse drawn carriage rides. Preserve the horses, the livery and the carriage rides, a beloved part of New York City.

Why is this important?

Let the carriage horses be! As a professional animal trainer and manager, I know that my animals love the work we do together, and they love their fans and the carriage horses do too! Both carriage and police horses are beloved and cared for and are an important part of New York - AND SHOULD REMAIN SO. Don't sell out the stables for commercial development. Instead, give them turnout privileges in Sheep's Meadow, Central Park and one day of rest a week to enjoy it!
