Mumbai court bans joyriding in iconic horse-drawn carriages

A family enjoys a ride on a horse drawn carriage popularly known as ‘victorias’ in Mumbai, India, Tuesday, June 9, 2015. The horse drawn carriages are one of city’s tourist attractions.
The blingy joyrides will soon be ending in Mumbai.
Tourists hoping to roll down the city's cacophonous streets in one of its famed, horse-drawn carriages will have to do so before June 2016, when a court has ordered the carriages be banned, saying it was a form of animal cruelty.
