A popular tourist attraction in Central Park, the controversial horse carriages have been a hot topic in the City for the past several years. Unable to ban them completely despite his promise to do so on his first day in office, Mayor Bill de Blasio recently made some improvements to how the horses are treated, but they don't go far enough. In this heartbreaking video from our friends at NowThis News, see what life is really like for the working carriage horses in Central Park.
