Ban Melbourne Horse and coach tours ! sign now

Melbourne happily promotes the cruel and outdated practice of Horse drawn coach tours around the City with many keen tourists buying into this trade with eyes wide shut.

Horses are forced to toil in all weather extremes, dodge traffic, and pound the roads all day long. These gentle animals suffer from respiratory ailments because they breathe in exhaust fumes, and they develop debilitating leg problems from walking on hard surfaces. In some cases, horses have even dropped dead from heatstroke after working in scorching summer heat and humidity.


When horses grow too old, tired, or ill to continue pulling heavy loads, they aren't retired to green pastures and loving homes, as many people are led to believe. It's cost-prohibitive to maintain permanent sanctuary for the countless numbers of horses who break down in this industry. Instead, many worn-out horses are likely slaughtered and turned into dog food or feed for carnivores in zoos or shipped overseas for human consumption.

Horse and Coach tours are already banned in London and Paris with a ban closing in on New York, so lets see Melbourne take a stand against this cruel practice and get these horses off the streets and back in the countryside where they belong.

Please sign this petition and help be the voice for these beautiful, mistreated animals.

Thankyou so much for your help.
