if they stopped horsing around on the animal care, they would still be hot to trot.

They're going to a better place. Hoofless with lots of barking.

I want kids to have the opportunity to interact with animals, but the idea of keeping ponies to be ridden day in and day out until they are too fragile to continue seems unnecessarily cruel. I'd much rather they dedicate an area of the park as a free range ranch for educational purposes.

Am I supposed to hike down Bronson canyon like some kind of person who likes hiking?

Nothing so silly can ruin my day. But it did make me chuckle for a second so thanks.

What do you think happens to most (if not all) ponies?

Damn activists always gotta stirrup trouble. This was a stable situation until they started trying to stall everything. It makes me saddle little.

They can keep the tradition alive at a much reduced cost:

what else is there to do in L.A.

The peta files are full of ideas to eliminate billions of living animals they claim to have the best interest in mind of. If you can't have horse riding, there's no demand for care and upkeep. At best they're put out to pasture and mildly neglected, and there's no demand for the next generation of the animal.

Honestly I've never even heard anyone mention the pony rides at Griffith Park.

FTFA: "Animal welfare laws, created with the input of veterinarians and equine experts, are constantly ignored by the pony ride operator and are never enforced by Park and Recreation, and Los Angeles Animal Services nor Los Angeles Police Department..."

That gets the "Sad" tag? What's sad is how many people are accepting of animal abuse.

I'm sure the cruel/indifferent owner will now put them out to pasture to live out the full measure of their lives in comfort and tranquility.

They could call it Pony Country Safari. For the more adventurous in spirit, parents could drop their kids off at one end of the park and wait for them at the other end. Meanwhile the kids would have to wrangle a pony and ride it across the park, which will have barriers that only a kid on a pony can cross. At the end of the day the remaining parents with no kids will be allowed to go looking for the stragglers.

What's sad is it took this long to get rid of it. Even Disney got rid of the Main Street horses, and they were being taken care of.

Animals are over.

It's all Internet memes now.
