Hello,
 
Im writing today to urge you to seriously consider having the
courage and empathy to pass INTRO 92. This bill would ban the old
outdated industry of carriage horses in NYC. We have had lots of
traditions that were banned outright as we evolved as a more aware
moral society of humans.
 
I understand that change is hard, especially when you are in any
powerful position. But change in ideas and awareness and ethics
have been what has made society better for us all. It took the
courage and passion of humans in your position to say this industry
like many others that use to profit from pain is over. Its not
acceptable anymore.
 
The NYC horse-drawn carriage industry  is about serious long term
suffering daily in this wonderful city people look up to. Imagine
being worked all day in the congested busy loud streets, then your
reward at the end of the day is to be tied in a stall to small
for your body. No turning around ,no stretching no mercy. 
 
Lastly I wanted to share a wise quote from an idol of society
GANDI-A SOCIETY AND ITS MORAL PROGRESS CAN BE JUDGED BY
THE WAY ITS ANIMALS ARE TREATED.Its time for use to put this
behavior towards these horses in the past and look to a greater
future for all. Please help us evolve support this bill proudly.
 
Thank you so much for giving me the chance to express my concern
about the carriage horses.
