“At NYClass, we firmly stand strong in the logical assertion that horses do not belong in traffic, especially for long distances and especially all day long, as with the carriage horses,” Carnegie said.
While it is not clear who owns Billy, Carnegie explained that he lives at Chateau Stables, a company that offers carriage rides and private horseback riding experiences, and rents out ponies for special events. If the company continues to offer horseback rides, Carnegie thinks that the animals should be safely transported in a trailer.
“Chateau Stables does possess trailers,” Carnegie said. “Riding these horses in chaotic traffic in rush hour, this is absurd and incredibly dangerous.”
Chateau Stables could not immediately be reached for comment.
