Officials say the 10-year-old horse named Arthur was near Central Park on Feb. 4 when he was frightened and took off running, causing minor injuries to three carriage passengers and damage to surrounding vehicles. Blue Star Equiculture, a Palmer, Massachusetts sanctuary that specializes in carriage horse retirement, took in Arthur soon after the crash.
An NYC carriage horse industry spokesperson says the sanctuary has the resources to give Arthur the care he needs.
