Are Ponies Being Treated With Cruelty At The New Coney Rides?

The new rides at Coney from Reithoffer’s Playland on the Thor Equities property is already getting flack. As The Gowanus Lounge observed; what is part of a living "ride" could look to some like animal cruelty.

The
Gowanus Lounge writes:
The five ponies and the ride are ostensibly part of a petting zoo set up on developer Joe Sitt’s property. Whether one considers the attraction and the sight of ponies chained to such a device and forced to endlessly walk in circles depends on one’s perspective.

Luckily, the ponies will only be going in circles here for only two weeks.
