Please take a moment to sign up for our mailing list. It is the most effective way for you to stay up to date on events and efforts to ban the horse carriages in Victoria. Thank you.
It will take a community effort to liberate the horses that work in the carriage-horse industry from this inhumane and outdated form of animal exploitation and tourism. We need your help to spread the word and take action on their behalf and on behalf of all citizens and visitors to Victoria who are put in danger by their forced labour in our city streets.
Violence against non-human animals is everywhere in our society, but some of these practices are more visible than others.
In Langford, the rodeo is now gone because people spoke out against the inhumane practices of that industry. In Oak Bay, Sealand of the Pacific has been gone for many years after a fatal incident due to the inhumane conditions of the orca whales kept there.
Now, it is time for the horse-drawn carriages of Victoria to be banned for the inhumane practice of forcing horses to wade through city streets and endangering public safety.
This is animal exploitation, plain and simple. Every time we go out into the community to raise awareness and challenge this industry we meet concerned citizens who agree, horse-drawn carriages in Victoria need to end. For the horses and for all of us.
Victoria Horse Alliance is a community advocacy project of the Animal Protection Party of Canada. You can help support our efforts to end the exploitation of horses in Victoria by donating through the main APP page. Thank you.
