NYC carriage horses are the most regulated working horses in the country. They live lives better than 90% of horses across the country, filled with amenities like fully sprinklered stables in case of fire, 24/7 stablemen, and mandatory vacations in the country. The carriages have an outstanding safety record, with only 3 equine fatalities due to traffic and zero human fatalities in almost 40 years. They are historic, iconic, beloved, and live better lives than some people in NYC, including children and seniors. These are privately owned businesses, many second generation, and the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness plus private property laws figure prominently. Long live the Famous Horse Drawn Carriages of Central Park!
