NYC Horses Can't Just be Horses 
The lack of water for the carriage horses cited in Elizabeth Forel's article is the tip of the iceberg. According to equine veterinarians I interviewed for a documentary film called "Blinders," many conditions in New York City cannot be corrected in a way that would make this industry humane. For starters, these horses have no pasture. They are either attached to a carriage or stored in a small cell in a midtown warehouse. How can we deny these horses the ability to graze, interact with other horses and do anything that comes naturally to them?

Donny Moss is the director of a new documentary called Blinders: The Truth Behind the Tradition. Because it currently is being considered for inclusion in certain film festivals, it has not been released yet.
