The anti-carriage-horse movement has done a lot to insert their warped vision of the NYC carriage industry into mainstream thought. They are well-organized, well-funded and very vocal, and have convinced politicians and policy makers that a majority of New Yorkers want a ban and that very few tourists care one way or the other about the carriages and would just as soon ride in an ugly electric car.
We know they're wrong, though. Two recent online polls have shown that more than 70% of readers of stories about NYCLASS's proposed carriage ban are in favor of KEEPING the horses right where they are, right where they belong -- in New York City.
RIght now, Mayor Bill de Blasio says he's going to ban us. But he cannot do that without the support of City Council. So here's what we need people to do. We need our supporters to spread the word that a ban is being threatened. Direct people to www.SaveNYCHorseCarriages.com. And then we need you to let City Council know that *you* support NYC's iconic carriage industry.
Does it matter if you are a NYC resident or not? No! Carriage horses in Central Park are an American - and international! - icon. People come from around the world to ride in our carriages, or just to spend time with the horses and see them in Central Park, which was built for their use.
Here's what you can do to help.
1.) Be sure to follow us on Facebook and on Twitter and share this website with your contacts.
2.) Join our mailing list to stay updated with news about upcoming events, City Council hearings and protests.
3.) Write or call City Council members urging them to resist Mayor de Blasio's ill-advised and wrong-headed
4.) Share your NYC carriage story, photos or letter of support on our website.
5.) Donate to our legal defense fund.
6.) Help preserve the working horse and educate the next generation of teamsters. Help real horses in need that are not lucky enough to be NYC carriage horses. Support working horses with Blue Star Equiculture, official retirement program of the NYC carriage industry.
