Lea Michele loves horses! Which is why she always says neigh to horse-drawn carriage rides.
“The one thing I find the least romantic is taking a horse and carriage ride. I can’t express enough how unhappy these horses are and how much pain and suffering they go through each day. Please do not ride [in horse-drawn carriages]. Take a beautiful walk together with your loved ones instead of bringing more pain to these beautiful animals.”
We absolutely agree. The horses in Central Park look downright miserable, and we can't imagine it is fun for them to walk around on the hard street all day.
But we are curious - what is Lea doing on her Valentines Day?

Lea Michele has really been championing the cause calling for the ban of carriage horses in NYC.
She's directly addressed Mayor Bloomberg several times, attempting to sway him.
"Please tweet to @MikeBloomberg if you agree that horse and carriages should no longer be on the busy streets of NYC. And let’s end this."
Then she later wrote:
"@MikeBloomberg please listen to the thousands of people who are saying that they no longer want horse & carriage rides in this city."
Those poor horses forced to work hard during the harsh New York winter really had Lea upset. So upset she might have to do something drastic.
"New York, u know how much I love you. But if I see another horse & carriage struggling in this winter weather I may not be able 2 be here."
Oh man. C'mon New York. If you want your Lea Michele back, you're gonna have to get on the no horse carriage bandwagon.
