British actress and animal advocate Joanna Lumley is on a mission! The Absolutely Fabulous star is part of a campaign working to end horse-drawn carriages in New York’s Central Park.

Lumley believes that horses shouldn’t be forced to work in “freezing and boiling” weather and hopes authorities will soon pass legislation banning the trade.

“People have an old romantic notion about it. I would just say, ‘Please think again – think of the freezing and boiling weather they are forced to work in, and think of the cramped city stables where the horses are kept,” Lumley said.

“I wish they would just allow the horses to remain in Central Park, but I understand that’s hard to achieve with the city. I love the bill aimed at replacing the horse-drawn carriages with Great Gatsby-era cars. That is glamorous.”

What do you think about Central Park’s horse-drawn carriages? Totally cool or ridiculously cruel? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!
