    Perk – for the record, the horse did not trip because he was tired. The horse tripped because he shied at something, started to back up and jack-knifed the carriage, and then hit the curb and tripped. The carriage rides in NYC are suspended once the temps reach 90 degrees, which obviously it wasn't on that day since they were working. The woman screaming in this video is a lunatic who admitted, on national television, to have over- reacted. She is also an opportunist trying to make a fast buck off someone else's misfortune, and for that I find her particularly repulsive. Which brings me to this, CNN – how much did you pay this woman for the use of this ridiculous video, as she is now screaming copyright infringement on Youtube where it and the others first appeared?

      della you are dreaming if you think they come off the streets at 90 degrees. i,ve walked by there on days near 100 degrees and they were still there not to mention with the heat index it can be 110 degrees.why dont you tow fat tourists around in the heat and see how easy it is?

    How hot is it running those horses ? Horses trip just like people sometimes as well as have the mentality of a 5 year old.Now I'm worried seeing this and how hot is it outside to be running these carriages ? How long had that horse been working ? Who's checking the schedule to make sure ? I think he got tired and tripped and it's to hot to be pulling a carriage, although we didn't see the date this happened but will assume it's recent. It's so hot you can fry an egg on the street and how do you think the horse feels ? Beware Mr. NYC horse owner and push o'l Smokey to hard and you may get a hoof in your mouth and end up in a dental chair. It's to hot to be running horse carriages and chill out til it cools off.
