NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS




Please join us for a laugh-filled evening at THE AMAZING LIVE STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW  to support our campaign to liberate NYC’s carriage horses.    

The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages is the only group in NYC that has consistently fought this issue since 2006 – to ban the inhumane horse-drawn carriage industry.  We put this issue on the map when it had been dormant for years - and we continue to do so because the horses need our help.  We are the group that got the historic bill,  Intro 658, introduced in the City Council, which would ban the carriage horse industry; we encouraged the NYC Comptroller’s office to do the first ever audit (2007)  of the agencies that oversee the industry and we pitched the story to the NY Times, which was publicized around the world; we started the international global coalition Horses Without Carriages International, which will hold demos world wide on December 5th.

BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP AND SUPPORT  
TO CONTINUE THIS FIGHT.  

We are an all volunteer organization.  Every penny we raise goes to our campaign to liberate NYC's carriage horses.
