Animal cruelty in New York City

New York City has so many great things. Music, art, dance, acting, sights and a great vibe. One thing I hate about New York is that they have a touristic attraction which makes animal cruelty seem okay. It is by Central Park and it is riding a horse carriage. I hate seeing that, it is animal cruelty. For one thing, the horse carriage is heavy and than they have the rider and the tourists on the carriage. The added fact that they are riding near cars and so many people and loud noises is cruel as well and dangerous. It is not fair to them. Horses are supposed to be in ranches where they can ride freely with grass to eat. They eat grains and the pigeons are all over their food. 
I am an animal lover and they are unable to advocate for them self so people have too. This old tradition for horse carriage rides should be banned. I understand it being done a long time ago but things have changed in the world now and this need to stop. Horses are gentle and beautiful creatures who deserve to be cared for in a safe environment. If the tourists who came to New York would stop going on this attraction, the people wouldn’t make any money and would have to get a new profession and than the horses will have their freedom. Please stop this out dated tradition and rent a bike, take a bus or walk. Every time one gets on a horse carriage, you are saying it is okay for these animals to be mistreated.
