Chicago Carriage Horses at Equine Rescue Facility

On February 6, 2009, six Chicago carriage horses were seized from facilities being used by urban carriage company J.C. Cutters, Ltd.

Chicago Animal Care and Control alleges that the horses were being kept improperly; the horse owners have responded that City officials acted without due process, and that the horses had adequate food, water, shelter, and exercise.

These horses are in need of a resolution, since they are being held at the Hooved Animal Humane Society (HAHS) equine rescue, located outside Chicago in McHenry County, until legal proceedings are wrapped up.

I’ve been covering this story for the equine health and welfare magazine The Horse (http://www.thehorse.com), and had the opportunity to photograph the horses cooling their heels, and just being horses, in the HAHS pastures over the past few months. I will also be uploading these images to my website, http://www.KempEquine.com.

Thanks for an interesting project!

Hi Libby,
Thanks for the tip, I'll look into it. Because this has been an ongoing issue/story, and I'm reporting on it for The Horse, my preference is to remain neutral and not take sides. :)
