Update: New York City Horse-Drawn Carriages

Well intentioned, perhaps. Educated, definitely not.

An NYC tradition since 1858, the carriage horses are regulated and well cared for.  Out of the 220 Horses licensed and registered to operate, only 68 can be working at one time.  This builds in rest time for all of the horses and assures that none are overworked.

Are there unscrupulous and uncaring Carriage owners?  Of that you can be sure; but they are a small percent and when found out, they stand to lose their licensing and livelihood.

Take a tour with me:

Then I am in good company....

Do they look a little worn by day's end, the carriage horses, of that you can be sure. Don't we all?
