I can deal with those wackos on the internet, in real life not so much. She no longer works there (I was not the only one that happened to).

    I think once HSUS got their foot in the door, they will come in with guns a blazing.

    When the RARAs came for the NYC carriage industry,
    I remained silent;
    I was not a NYC carriage owner - and besides, I didn't really like to see horses working there.

    When their groups succeeded in toppling urban carriage businesses like dominoes all across the country, using their victory in NYC as precedent,
    I remained silent.
    I did not have an urban carriage business.

    When they moved on to outlaw racing,
    I remained silent;
    I was not into racing.

    When they came for the breeders,
    I did not speak out;
    I didn't breed, and always got my horses from rescues.

    When they came for the eventers,
    I remained silent;
    I wasn't an eventer.

    When they came for me,
    there was no one left to speak out.

    Horses is not the only place they are after anyone that uses animals.
    Ask anyone in the dog world and you will hear plenty of stories about the HSUS push to pass all kinds of laws that sound good, but are affecting all, like the "puppy mill" laws, that in reality would affect all that breed dogs, making it so difficult as to make it impossible.

    The devil is in the details and unintended consequences, that in reality were foreseen in bringing those bills to vote.

    Tell me, why is the HSUS now suing the beef association, the pork board?
    Will horse groups as the USET, registries be next, The Jokey Club, the AQHA, AHA and others?
    Horse magazines?

    They are after publicity and the donations that brings just by their name.
    Who doesn't want to help animals and trusts someone with that kind of name?
    That money then helps them further their animal rights agendas, at the cost of true animal welfare and why not, they laugh all the way to the bank.

    well, I don't think THAT is the indicator that the cheese slipped off the cracker...but it certainly fuels the impression.

    I commented on something of hers via my FB profile....the one that had actually my name on it...she said it was a lovely made up one.... ah, no, lady, the one my Momma and the man from city hall bestowed on me.... her synapses are not firing in the right order for sure.

    I agree Bluey I am watching with much sadness and disdain the news Feeds on FOL about the legislation that just passed in Virginia involving hunting with dogs.

    I do. We have a whole contingent of dog breeders who are supporting us here in NYC, and vice versa. There is a coalition of all kinds of animal people building against this onslaught, I have met alot of excellent people, and they give me hope.

    This is not just the carriage industry at stake - it's the horse industry.

    Ever hear of unintentional consequences?
    There is absolutely NOTHING "unintentional" about any consequences that WILL arise if these bills pass and are signed by the Gov.

I'm sure there are plenty of people on this board who disagree with carriage horses in NYC, but won't voice their opinion publically because you would expose yourself to all sorts of nastiness.

    I agree with you. The "carriage industry" would be doing itself a favor if it fired the OP as its spokesperson.

    I don't think carriage horses belong in NYC...there, I said it. And, I'm not some Bambi-loving animal rights activist. Far from it. I don't think banning carriage horses in NYC means that activist are coming after my horses, too. Provoking this type of hysteria in horse owners is just a red herring to try and protect a type of business that probably doesn't belong in the least horse-friendly city in the world.

    You are wrong. This is a policy matter. It isn't about whether horses belong in NYC.

    When legislators are lobbied to outlaw an existing industry, they want to know why. They need to understand why this practice is inherently different from all the other cities that have the same practice.

    The reason NYCLASS has failed so far to ban horse drawn carriages in NYC is that they can't differentiate between how these horses live and any other horses. Policy makers aren't (all) idiots. They need to be able to tell the media that horses don't belong in NYC "Because NYC is different from the whole rest of the planet and here's why." Otherwise they look like fools.

    Does that mean legislatures never pass laws that DON'T pass the smell test? Of course not, sometimes political will overcomes logic.

    Here's the point: If this bill passes, then the argument that NYC horses aren't different from any other horses gets flipped on us. Do you comprehend, naysayers?

    If pulling a carriage in NYC is inherently cruel, and Joe Schmoe Chairman of the Public Safety Committee in Your State also thinks eventing, with FAR more deaths, is cruel, then now it is on all of us to explain why eventing is so much more humane than keeping a horse in NYC.

    Since, you know, eventers never die. Spectacularly. During international competition. And they get turned out every day, on grass even when it's January, and they have a balloon surrounding them keeping the temps near them always between 50 and 65 degrees. And they don't sweat, flop their ears over, cock a hind leg, spill their grain, slobber, lay in poop, stick their tongue out, drink out of puddles...or any of the other things that are THE ONLY PROOF of "abuse" in the NYC carriage industry.

    Go ahead. Defend YOUR sport from this mentality.

    WAKE UP. Love Eva or hate her, but look in the mirror first. And go on over to Carriage Horse Cruelty, Stopping NYC Horse Abuse, and No Walk in the Park on Facebook.

    For the love of god read HUNDREDS of comments that all say "OMG! Those assholes! Horses belong in a pasture! Poor babies!" under a picture of a snoozing horse. Until you want to gouge out your eyeballs.

    Post something rational on there and see how long it takes to get banned.

    THEN come back and bitch about Eva.

    Speaking of dogs, a hunting friend of ours was put out of the hunting dog business in a NY minute because CA banned that type of hunting. So, all those well bred dogs went....somewhere. They lost their value overnight, not to mention the training which was put into them.

    Also, and I'm not picking on one person, only stating the obvious, my question wasn't ever answered and she seems to have quit this post.

    Just for the record, Steve Nislick, co-founder of NYCLASS, is an eventer.

    Yeah, wrap your mind around that and then tell me that this really has anything to do with the horses.
    Most people don't need a $35,000 horse. They need a $1,000 horse and $34,000 in lessons.

    I think this is not about the Holocaust itself, but comparing as per the slippery slope, that the Holocaust was but a part of it.
    Hitler's advances to absolute power is a perfect example of this.
    If those that have and use animals, here horses, don't stand up together to those that attack us, together we will fail.

    See Laura its statements like yours that frost my cap. You take issue with a piece of literature recomposed to reflect a current situation(btw people do it all the time) ....but its perfectly OK apparently at least OK enough that you didn't bother to make a public post defaming that E.Forel and her radial friends compare carriage horses/owners to slaves/slave owners daily.

We hope one day to add the prohibition to enslave and exploit horses to that list. Chaz, why are you here, if you do not believe that carriage horses should be outlawed?

    But I don't read the other side or your side, for that matter unless it's a post here on COTH, and they're not posting here on COTH at the moment. I would make the same argument with them if they were posting on COTH.

    I've tried to point out, in the past, that playing the game their way doesn't really help the carriage horse cause. The less people you offend the better. But clearly you all have chosen the path.

    But I will call out offensive posts on COTH. If you don't like it, don't post on COTH.

    Alagirl, I wouldn't call wanting to eliminate carriage horses from city streets evil. I don't agree with the anti-carriage people, but I reserve the word evil for genocide, murderers, pedophiles, rapists, etc.
