MIDTOWN, Manhattan (WABC) -- A carriage horse involved in an accident recently is now retiring.
"Arthur" was spooked by a person opening an umbrella in Central Park and caused an accident that injured three people.
Now, a sanctuary in Western Massachusetts is taking the 10-year-old in.
The incident reignited an argument over whether horse-drawn carriages should be banned in the city.
The carriage industry says the horses and carriages they drive are safe.
