Miley and her family have been vocal in their support of banning horse-drawn carriages in New York City, encouraging fans to sign this petition.
According to the story, “A spokeswoman for New Yorkers for Clean, Livable & Safe Streets, the organization behind the proposed ban, told E! today that they ‘shattered’ their goal of scoring a 100,000 signatures, largely thanks to the Cyrus family’s help, and that they’re hoping to have 110,000 by the end of this month.”
Growing up on a 500-acre farm near Nashville, horses have always been near to Miley’s heart–on and off the screen.

Last night Miley tweeted this thank-you to her fans who signed the petition:
Miley’s mother Tish has additionally hinted that they would love to turn part of their family farm into a horse sanctuary for retired carriage pullers.
Other celebrities who have voiced support for the cause include Alec Baldwin, Lea Michele, Pamela Anderson and Joan Jett.
