.

I am the owner of Nottingham Shire and Carriage for Hire. The horses we own are kept on 2.8 acres they are free to roam and socialize with each other. They also get some time off through out the year at our farm. They have several shelters and dry areas in the Atlanta facility and they do not have to stay in the mud. The first 2 pictures above are right after a heavy rain storm in February 2011, which was a record breaking month for rainfall. I have uploaded some more recent photos of the facility.
In response to the cruelty allegations; We have a Georgia Department of Agriculture Stable license and we have regular inspections by the city of Atlanta and the state. We consistently receive great reviews. We have beautiful horses that are well cared for and you can visit our website and see photos of them (http://carriageforhire.com) or you can come to Downtown Atlanta and go for a carriage ride.
I know that the animal rights people want these horses set free or living on a grassy pasture. But I am not sure where these animal rights people think horses stay in the wild? Wild horse are out in the weather and have a much shorter life span than a well cared for working horse. Many horses that are on pasture board do not look as good as our carriage horses.
I have been a horse owner longer than most of these 20-something year old animal rights activists have been alive, and I have never seen or heard of a horse building their own shelter. Maybe we should take some of these activist away from the life they are accustomed to and turn them loose in the wild and see how long they can survive. That would give them something to do other than take work away from some American work horses.
It is sad that a handful of uninformed people want to ban horse carriage rides because they think its cruel. None of the activist in Atlanta have ever attempted to contact me directly and see our facility or spend any time with our horses. None of the activists in Atlanta want to listen when we tell them that they are misinformed about our horses. None of the activists in Atlanta want to listen when they are yelling at people admiring our horses when they are Downtown at rest at a carriage stand. None of the activists in Atlanta want to listen when we tell them that half our horses are 12-16 years old; in great health and have been giving carriage rides for over 8 years! (the activists state carriage horses only live 4 years). But these activists want me to listen to them and turn my back on our horses and make them survive on their own because they say its cruel but cannot generate any data to back up their statements. These activists have no consideration that the horse has been domesticated for 5000 years. The horse has built most of the cities we humans live in and were the cornerstone of farming and agriculture for thousands of years. Horses made it possible for humans to take over this planet and today these domesticated horses our companions need humans to survive - especially the draft horse.
Furthermore I have owned some our herd for over 13 years. Some of my horses have worked with me and my family for over a decade and I will continue to support them.
