Horsedrawn-carriage Protest ; Martina Navratilova Makes News (25 July 2012)

Tourists are sold on the fairy tale that taking a ride on a horse carriage is a romantic thing to do. But, as you will see from this shocking video, taking a ride through busy Midtown Manhattan traffic can be dangerous. This is a warning : some of the photos that you will see may be disturbing.

The carriage drivers created a scandal in the last few weeks, after some drivers were reported to have used hate speech (homophobic and racist comments) against animal rights activists ; the homophobia and racism drew the attention and criticism of tennis superstar and LGBT icon Martina Navratilova.

Make a pledge today to support Roots of Betrayal : The Ethics of Christine Quinn on Kickstarter.
