Being from New York City, I know firsthand how badly horses are treated. A close friend is leading a group that goes to politicians in New York trying to get them to change something. They have come up with an easy solution that I will be discussing later.

I disagree with the instigator because what reason is there to treat horses with respect? From the average human's perspective, horses are best known for transportation, therefore, they are doing what they do best.

So you ask why horses should be treated with respect. What the f*ck. Animals have feelings too. They are living, breathing mammals just like you and me. They can feel both pain and joy. Why should their feelings and thoughts be valued any differently from human's? Why should they be have to work up to 22 hours a day and be crammed into tiny stalls in apartment tidings during their few hours of rest per day? It's just inhumane. Additionally, why must we torture and completely humiliate horses to use them as a form of transportation, when one can simply ride a car. Cars have no health or feelings that can be damaged. I still cannot see why we must severely injure and ridicule them just so people can ride them, when their is an eased, sader, and more humane solution.

I am very sorry for forfeiting the previous rounds. I was on a vacation in which I could not access the Internet. Since this is already the last round, I will conclude my arguments; having carriage horses in New York City is inhumane and unfair for the horses.

Carriage horses can be found in all big cities, including Chicago and San Antonio, and I wholeheartedly agree that this is wrong and should be considered abuse.
