Re: “PETA Asks Eureka to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages [Updated]

Since these practices of using horses for entertainment, (OR ANY ANIMAL, ESPECIALLY CIRCUS ANIMALS,READ PETA'S OTHER BLOGS AS WELL) is so wide spread in this country, wake up america! You say you love animals-I disagree-you are using them to make money. Do you also know how elephants get shacked. How 'bout you? Human beings can be the meanest, most selfish things going. By the way, about this specific article, I would be interested to know if this particular town has any regulations on carriage horses, meaning the hours these creatures are forced to work and under what weather circumstances.

Re: “PETA Asks Eureka to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages [Updated]

I do not agree with using any horse for entertainment. I have heard the arguement about how light the carriage actually is that the horses pull. I have no proff however. My complaint in using old horses, being forced to walk on asphalt roads, hour after hour, 12 hours a day-in 90 degree heat or 18 below (NYC and NJ laws) Shackled with bits and leather gear, every day all day long, steering among traffic with our autos fumes, forsced to breathe. Lots of these horses come to work again from Amish country because they cannot, work with arthritis, laminitis and are old 20-25 years old, olny to be bought up again from the kill corral and forced to do it all over again. Dosen't that make you feel good when you hop up on a $35.00 a half hour ride? I wouldn't, in respect for the old tired animal, do it for free. Again, this is animal abuse.
