Subject: Fwd: Runaway horse!

Over 15 years ago when I lived in NY I started working on this issue, knowing how corrupt the city council was and how bought and paid for they were by the carriage horse industry.  But I thought we could kick them out of office one by one until clean politicians took over. I was dreaming. But now thousands of more activists are involved and pushing for an end to the industry and making headway. And I can't give up even though I haven't lived in NY for years. A carriage horse was electrocuted right outside the window of a rehearsal hall where I was working. It was so horrible to see, as much as I loved NY, I never felt the same about living there again.  And when I visit, seeing the horses dodging vehicles and standing on Central Park South in all kinds of god-awful weather makes me not even want to visit.  Here is a petition for you to sign as non residents of the city. I hope you will.

Britt - The unthinkable happened. Yesterday afternoon, a six-year-old carriage horse named Oreo was spooked by a horn, broke free from his carriage and tore through dangerous NYC traffic for four blocks before being tranquilized and collapsing in front of horrified onlookers. Thankfully, Oreo is now recovering in his stable with minor scratches. 

CLICK HERE to write to City Council NOW
! Tell them to pass Intro 86A, legislation which replaces the carriage horses with electric cars. Every letter sends a message to politicians that we demand action to stop horse carriages NOW. 

Will you take 10 seconds and write to City Council for the carriage horses?
 Please, do this for Oreo and all 220 NYC carriage horses who can't speak for themselves.

For the Horses,
Allie Feldman
