 In "Hansom-Pedicab Turf War" (Sept. 30), we hear complaints from both carriage drivers and pedicab drivers (with arguably more attention given to the horse-carriage drivers). Distinctly missing was a voice for the horses, so here it is: It's no fun being shackled, blinders over the eyes, pulling heavy carriages, trudging on hard pavement, not only through the park but through noisy, congested Midtown streets, nose to tailpipe and then kept in cramped stalls. What do the horses get out of the deal? Some stale oats and dirty water? It's cruelty to the max. No more making money off their backs.
