The race for the next mayor of New York City may be a historic one.
Not only for humans, but for horses, too!
Horse drawn carriages in New York City have become a big issue these days.
Animal activists say it is severe animal cruelty to have horses drawing carriages around cars in the city. Plus they say the horses are treated very poorly!
But others say that to remove carriage horses from the city will put 300 people out of a job!
One of the supporters of carriage horses is Christine C. Quinn - a top candiate to replace Michael Bloomberg as mayor of the Big Apple.
But one of her main opponents is not a supporter.
