 knows her way around a horse—she
was an award-winning competitive rider in her teens—so she knows exactly how
bad New York City’s carriage
industry
 is for horses. So it’s no surprise that the
longtime animal advocate jumped at the chance to channel Lady Godiva in a new
PETA ad against horse-drawn carriage rides:

Cornelia
unveiled the ad at the New York stop of PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk’s The Naked Truth lecture tour
at New York University, and she also moderated a lively stage interview with
Ingrid and fielded questions from the audience.

Cornelia, who has previously helped PETA campaign against fur, joins other celebrities, including Lea MicheleMiley Cyrus, and Alec Baldwin, in blasting New York City’s cruel carriage industry, in which horses are forced
to navigate busy city traffic for long hours in all weather extremes. Horses
and passengers have been injured in 18 carriage accidents during the past two
years alone.

Other cities, including London, Paris,
and Toronto, have banned horse-drawn carriages, and thousands of people have
signed a petition to ban
them in New York City
