Horses used to pull carriages are forced to haul passengers in sweltering heat and driving rain and are frequently denied adequate rest, food and water. They are often kept in filthy, damp stables infested with biting insects, and some suffer from incurable lameness. Most never see a veterinarian in their lifetime. Horse-drawn carriages are also dangerous – for horses and humans. They’ve caused numerous injuries and even deaths, including the death of a 3-year-old child who was thrown from a carriage in 2010 after the horse was startled by a passing car.

Sharma joins a growing number of celebrities – including Arjun Rampal,Hema MaliniJohn AbrahamJacqueline FernandezZeenat Amanand choreographer Sandip Soparrkar and his supermodel wife Jesse Randhawa – who have asked for a ban on horse-drawn carriages.

Now it’s your turn to take action:

ban horse carriages
