Two Change.org Petitions, both for Carolina carriage horses

Elizabeth Forel notified us of two pending active Change.org Petitions concerning carriage horses. Please sign them today, right now while you are thinking about it.

1. Charleston SC
2. Hillsborough, SC

As you can see, this is not a New York City problem. It is a problem in many towns and cities across America.

1. CHARLESTON, S. CAROLINA

Stand up for the long exploited horses in Charleston, South Carolina.

Horse drawn carriages are dangerous. The treatment of the horses forced to work in these conditions is inhumane. Take action.

The city of Charleston allows horse-drawn carriage wagons to pull 17 people in 98 degree temperatures with very high humidity. It is an obscene image.

The City refuses to do anything about it and as long as you spend your tourism dollars in Charleston they will do nothing. Please speak out and sign this petition to boycott Charleston for as long as this continues.

    2. HILLSBOROUGH, N. CAROLINA

    Stand up for the equally exploited horses of Charleston, South Carolina.

    We hope you are willing to take a few minutes out of your busy day to lend a voice to these horses.

    Please don’t think you don’t need to because a lot of other people are probably doing it.

    We know the horses can count on you!

    1. I am in favor of carriage horses pulling carriages of people in normal temperatures only, and NOT in packed carriages with as many people as seen in picture above! I think these horses enjoy their job as long as they are well-cared-for otherwise, in ALL ASPECTS. All carriage horses should be given breaks, water, and replacement horses take over for them when needed. If they develop small sores, they should be tended to and NOT forced to keep pulling until a large sore develops! I am only in favor of well-cared-for horses in anybody’s charge, not just for carriage-pulling.

    2. Thanks for putting this up. Signed.

      These poor horses! Cannot understand why the people “enjoying” the carriage ride are so blind to the suffering of these defenceless horses.
