Activists: carriage horse mistreatment in Midtown
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Animal rights advocates were out in force in Midtown Saturday protesting what they said was the mistreatment of carriage horses during the holiday season.
The protesters called it an educational rally intended to inform tourists of the misdeeds of the carriage horse industry and urge them not to use the horses.
They claim the horses aren't being given 15 minute breaks every two hours as required by law.
They urged tourists to take a pedicab ride instead of using a carriage horse.
