New York City reached a deal for legislation to almost halve the licenses for horse to perform carriage rides in Central Park. It will take three years to be fully implemented starting on June 1st.
The deal will reduce licensed horses from 180 to 110 by Dec with ultimate goal to reduce the number to 95 horses. And by October 1, 2018, the deal demands 75 horses be given a long term home in Central Park stables therefore banning rides on the streets of Manhattan.
