    Holy crap, Laura! Scary stuff.

    I would be inclined to agree with the vitriol in politics being a contributor. People are just so cruel. Perhaps it's not any worse than what used to occur behind...

    Those quotations from the RARAs on their Facebook forums are horrifying. It's amazing to me that there have been as few physical assaults on drivers as there have been, with these sorts of people...

    It's my understanding that the idea of moving them to the Park has been around for umpteen years. Many decades. It hasn't been allowed. So discussing it is, unfortunately, nothing more than an...

    I hope this thread doesn't go too far afield with risk assessment and horse health. I'm sure we can all name half a dozen things that most horsepeople do - or have done, regularly - that are not...

    It's a good reminder from earlier in the thread, despite the thick layer of snide derision.

    I do know that simply opening the stables every weekend is likely a sizeable undertaking, since the...

    I'm probably pointing out the obvious here, but as for the opinions and attitudes of the carriage OPERATORS, I don't believe we have any active, current drivers on this thread. They work long hours...

    So. The horses.

    They're not abused. They're not mistreated. There has been zero evidence of either taking place in NYC, despite the ASPCA trying very hard to find it. There are fewer...

    Or that people who post on these forums are doing literally nothing else productive.

    My family was in the vehicular livery business for more than twenty years. I worked there myself for quite some time. I can tell you all that livery is a cash-driven industry for many reasons, one of...

    You're being played, cloudy. It simply didn't happen the way they say it did. On the surface, their stuff looks slick, but it's supposed to. Horse X pulled a carriage and eventually ended up at a...

    It's fascinating to watch some of the threads on their boards. If I had a dollar for every time they turned in on themselves and needed to be "contained" by Forel, I'd be a comfortable lady.

    The bill that the anti- groups were most proud of has indeed been languishing for years. I myself was most familiar with was Intro 86A.

    Forgive my rudimentary Schoolhouse Rock understanding of government, but it's part of the bill. If the bill passes, it becomes law. No proof of abuse would be required.
