New York carriage horse collapses in Manhattan street

A 14-year-old carriage horse allegedly collapsed in the middle of a busy Manhattan street after the driver pushed it to make a green light, one witness claims.

Bogdan Paul Angheluta was coming out of Space Ibiza nightclub when he saw the driver screaming at the horse before it collapsed around 2am last Friday. The horse’s caretaker has claimed he merely tripped and fell, but Angheluta said it was clear the horse was tired and breathing ‘slow and hard’ after the fall.

THis is exactly why this practice needs to end.  I’m sure some are humane and treat their horses well but it’s time for this to be over.

Thanks!
