Blinders (53 minutes)
Romanticized in the movies and on TV, the horse-drawn carriages of New York City are a beloved institution that attracts tourists from around the world. But animal rights activists have been saying for decades that the noisy, congested streets of midtown Manhattan are no place for a carriage horse and argue that tradition and tourist dollars are no excuse for abuse. The plight of the carriage horses is now in the public eye more than ever before, and the debate about the future of the industry has taken center stage. Through original footage taken with hidden cameras and interviews with experts and witnesses, Blinders takes viewers behind the scenes of this controversial industry to expose the truth behind the tradition.
