Why? Because the NYC horse carriages don’t need saving anymore, thanks to supporters who have worked tirelessly to get the message out about the New York City carriage horses, their high-quality care, and the people that work with them.

Still, there are always some people who remain unfortunately misinformed about carriage horses in New York City and elsewhere. This website,, is intended to be a vital resource to continue to educate the public and elected officials about carriage horses. #CarriageOn

  1. This is excellent and yes the horse sitting in the backyard without a job is the one in Jeopardy. We have been to the stables and personally seen the carriage horses (without notice). These horses are under so much regulation they can’t sneeze without being checked on. The horses are slick and shiny . The stalls are roomy and clean and the hay is plentiful! To deny a horse of social interaction with humans is cruel. The tradition of carriage driving is essential to Central Park, it was built to be enjoyed by horse-drawn carriage.
