Horses Without Carriages International has chosen two days in the year to globally acknowledge both carriage and cart horses, to publicize their plight and educate the public about the inherent cruelty involved in this industry. 

One of the purposes of the coalition is to stand in solidarity with activists from other cities and as tourists to their cities help influence their campaigns.

Our very first international day of protest was December 6, 2008, chosen because it is at the beginning of the tourist season for many cities and the beginning of cold winters.  June 6, 2009 was chosen because it is the beginning of another tourist season and very hot and humid weather experienced by many cities.
