Horses for causes

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - INBOX -

What a shame if Mel­bourne loses its horse-drawn car­riages (“When the clip-clop stops”, May 12-13). Kate Legge’s story about this won­der­ful ex­am­ple of re­tain­ing our his­tory was, in parts, dis­tress­ing be­cause once again we have pro­fes­sional ac­tivists try­ing to stop some­thing that is at­trac­tive, harm­less and pro­vid­ing work and in­come. Let Alex MacDon­ald get on with the busi­ness of car­ing for his horses and adding to the fab­ric of Mel­bourne by pro­vid­ing a link with our her­itage and a world-class at­trac­tion. It is the ig­no­rant, zealot­like, bul­ly­ing ac­tivists who should be banned.
