Coalition to Ban Horse Drawn Carriages
December 2016

This is one of the most devastating and hideous carriage horse accidents that we have heard about in a long time.

A spooked horse drowned in the Missouri River on Wednesday night with his carriage still attached.

Although several articles refer to this as a "freak accident" - there is nothing unusual about horses spooking and bolting - running for their lives. Their ignorant handlers and the public do not recognize or understand that they are prey animals who,regardless of their size can spook at the slightest provocation.

The politicians want to keep the "tradition," animals be damned.
