The horse carriage nightmare continues in NYC as holiday shoppers witnessed yet another fall on Sunday near the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street.
According to a spokesman for the Horse and Carriage Association of New York, who objected to the title of the YouTube video (NYC Carriage Horse Collapses 12/4/11 Copyright Win Animal Rights) the horse did not collapse, but instead “caught its toe in the pavement, which is quite common.”
A commenter on the Huffington Post however, took issue with that explanation saying, “I own horses and that IS NOT just a slip on a crack in the pavement. I suppose they think that everyone in society are buffoons. Not all!”
