Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography




I thought when I was in New York City’s Central Park I would have a change to take a ride in one of the horse-drawn carriages on my next visit.

It seems that I have missed my opportunity, the rides are now being banned.  What a shame!

I hope you enjoy the slide show below of the photos I’ve taken.

  2. That’s really neat to see these in the big city 🙂

  3. How sad to lose something with so much character.

  4. Such a shame. Another institution bites the dust and more people out of work who still have to feed the horses.

    I know, I have a vision that want the respect and protection of animals, and this is not understood by all…
    Anyhow, happy 2014 :-)c
