BREAKING NEWS: A member of NYCLASS was allegedly caught on film breaking a court order this past Thursday. The recent court order stated that those named in the case as well as any member NYCLASS directed to take action by them would be violating the court order from that day on if they came within nine feet of a horse carriage or blocked their path. The person caught on this video claimed to be a member of NYCLASS, so we believe an investigation into NYCLASS should be called upon to see if she was directed by them to harass these carriage drivers. Check the video out to see the kind of ignorant harassment NYC horse carriage drivers still have to deal with: youtu.be/oDjLVGkM_xQ

After viewing this video: The carriage horse doesn’t understand that the person trying to pet him wants the hackline to be moved to places unfamiliar, unsafe, and uncomfortable for him. You can see how much he enjoys interacting with passerby which he will be hidden away from if his hackline is moved into the park. He doesn’t know that he would be unsafely pinned between curbs at 5th Ave and have to stand on a hill in less shade in the summer at 7th Ave if his hackline is moved to the places specified by the D.O.T. He continues to reach his nose out to the person hoping these things happen to him because in his experience working with humans has always been a positive experience for him. He doesn’t know that if customers can no longer find him his owner will struggle to cover the hefty cost of his board, hay, shoes, veterinary exams, time on pastures, and other expenses. His needs should be advocated for by those who truly care about and for him.

Note that the carriage driver never once physically touched the person or property of the person harassing them and did their best to move their horse away from them. The carriage driver recording the incident never once irrelevantly name called or cursed their harasser. The carriage driver was polite and direct in their request, gave warning before calling the police, and only expressed concern for their horse, which was all disregarded and not reciprocated by the person harassing them. The blatant hypocrisy of animal rights extremists can be caught in just a few minutes of footage. Their ideals only apply when it suits them. At the start of the video you will note that she referred to the carriage driver’s horse as “your horse” and the carriage driver as “your owner” to the horse, but later claimed a horse could not be “owned.” She says that a horse has no right to be “used” but later catches herself saying “I have worked with horses, I *use* them” and finished the sentence with “as part of my family.” She wants to move the hackline to places where the horses would be inaccessible to the public, yet also benefit from petting him as she passes by then. She seems to have all the time in the world to stand there harassing the carriage driver but as soon as she incorrectly answers a specific question about bits, she suddenly has to go. The clueless harasser also claims they live across the street from our stables, and therefore knows more about what goes on within them than those who actually spend time working in them each day. We don’t know if they even live near our stables as NYC carriage horses live in multiple stables and she claims we’re standing on 57th Street when that’s 59th Street. The way she plays a game of semantics over touching the horse or the horse touching her is childlike, suggesting she sadly didn’t have the best upbringing, as is often the reality of people that develop such warped views about animals.

Finally: Raise your hand if you know the reason you don’t put a bicycle in front of a horse isn’t typically because the bike may scare them, if you know how many wrinkles there should be at the corner of a horse’s mouth with a properly fitted bit, if you know that horses are categorized as livestock which can legally be owned as someone’s property, if you know how common colic can occur in healthy horses, and if you can spot the person lying about being a decent equestrian...

Did you ever stop to analyze the pictures/videos of carriage horse accidents that animal rights activists repetitively post? Who are the people who really care about the horses? Is it the person who stood there filming the incident, shouting from the sidelines, or the people in the photos/videos working to help the horse? When animal rights activists hold protests outside stables, who are the people that really like horses? Are they the ones waving posters, standing outside or are they inside mucking out stalls, feeding, grooming and tending to horses needs? When animal rights activists spend an hour handing out flyers with their opinion printed on them, do they have more interest in the wellbeing of the horses than the person who has devoted more than half their day to caring for and working with them? Why is it that so many people trust the judgment of outsiders rather than listening to those who are handling their horses on a daily basis? When did the observers opinions start to hold more weight over the insiders? Why isn't it more often that an expert opinion is held as the most valuable? Shouldn't equine veterinarians and professionals words count for more than passerby shouting over them? When will those who work with animals have the strongest input regarding the laws passed about them? Why doesn't it bother more people that the most recently passed laws impacting animals haven't been sponsored by anyone with experience working with these animals? When will the general public start to acknowledge that the opinion they can trust comes from the person closest to the animals, as they have devoted such a large portion of their life to be with them?

1/12/19: "Home-sharing and horse carriages: One industry is strictly new-economy; the other, as old as it gets. But they’re both showing you can beat City Hall. Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Arthur Engoron this week called a halt to Mayor de Blasio’s latest effort to crush the city’s horse-carriage trade. Defeated time and again in his efforts to kill the industry, the mayor last year settled on a gambit to move carriage-pickup sites out of sight inside Central Park.

The drivers say this is meant to dry up their business, and in any case is a matter for the City Council to decide. The judge found their argument strong enough to put the plan on hold pending a hearing next month. De Blasio’s still trying to reward the real-estate moguls out to acquire the land where the horses’ stables are located, after they dumped $2 million into his 2013 campaign.

The same base motives explain the war on Airbnb and other home-sharing outlets: The politically potent hotel-workers union is convinced they steal its members’ jobs, and pushes nonstop for laws to kill them. Manhattan federal Judge Paul Engel­mayer last week granted an injunction against the latest such law. Set to go into effect Feb. 2, it requires Airbnb, HomeAway and similar firms to turn over data on their hosts to city officials in the name of public safety.

The judge wasn’t convinced: Some industries require strict regulation, he noted, but “the hotel industry does not involve inherently dangerous operations.” More: City Hall’s demand for the names and addresses of all listings looks like an unconstitutional “search and seizure.” The law’s true purpose seems punitive: As the judge noted, it appears to threaten Airbnb with $1 billion in fines.

This is a win for thousands of New Yorkers who use home-sharing to help make ends meet, just as the other ruling is a victory for one of the city’s humbler professions. Remember who was on the other side the next time de Blasio claims he’s fighting for the little guy."
