Inconveniently for the oft-criticized Horse and Carriage Association of New York, there was a camera nearby again. Animal rights activists blamed the holiday season and said, "These horses were being worked non-stop, going over and over again, ride after ride without a break," while the association says the horse is healthy and merely "caught its toe in the pavement, which is quite common." Ride on guilt-free, tourists.
