Mission Statement

The mission of the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages is to ban horse-drawn carriages through legislative efforts.

Description

Horse drawn carriages constitute a danger to people in vehicles, on bicycles and on foot. They impede the flow of traffic, particularly with respect to emergency vehicles. The horses are forced to work in dangerous, unhealthy and unnatural conditions. Other cities such as London, Paris and Toronto have all banned horse drawn carriages. It is time for New York City to move into the 21st century and take seriously its moral and ethical responsibility to these sentient beings while ensuring the safety of its citizens.


As a group, volunteers gather signatures on petitions from New Yorkers and tourists.
