It's something that has happened way too many times in Montreal, and yet here we are again. A horrifying video is spreading on Facebook of a caleche horse collapsing in Old Montreal on Sunday.

Apparently the horse and the driver were lined up waiting for customers when the horse fell to the ground. He layed there for at least 8 minutes before 3 caleche drivers managed to get him back up.

Similar incidents have happened in the past. Last year a horse was hit bay a car in the old port. A year before that a horse collapsed from exhaustion in Quebec and that same year, yet another horse collapse and slipped and on Notre Dame Street

Montreal had plans to ban the caleches altogether, but in the end they just added some rules and regulations on how long horses can work. As you can see these rules aren't very effective.
