Dismal Working, Living Conditions

Which is the worst stable for New York City's carriage horses? It's difficult to say.

After viewing video of the West Side Livery stable for WCBS-TV, equine veterinarian Elizabeth Kilgallon said that some of the horses look crammed into standing stalls so tight they can't turn around or lie down. The horses also seemed to be standing in their own urine, manure and on very little bedding, WCBS-TV reported in November 2007.
