A New York Times article has documented that “monitoring by the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene and the Department of Consumer Affairs at the Central Park South carriage stands is inadequate, the audit found, and lax veterinary care in the field and infrequent inspections have created health hazards.”

“In addition, horses are not provided with enough water, risk overheating on hot asphalt and are forced to stand in their own waste because of inadequate drainage, the report said.”

I didn’t need this report to know what I’ve seen in the Central Park horses eyes since I was a child…..they aren’t happy.
