Hang up the saddle (March 12, 2017: New York Daily News)

Floral Park: Wendy Neu and NYCLASS just won’t give up (“De Blasio’s unstable legacy on horses,” Op-Ed, March 10). She writes about the “inhuman lives these animals lead forced to trudge through the rain and cold, suffer through the heat and humidity, walking concrete streets, threatened by speeding vehicles.” Has Neu ever stood on a Manhattan street corner on those same wintry or summer days and watched the poor humans trudging on concrete streets and threatened by the same speeding vehicles? Apparently, she thinks animals deserve more sympathy and concern than us humans. She and NYCLASS just won’t concede defeat. It’s about time they saddled a horse and rode off in the sunset. Irv Leshkowitz
