The message to Mayor de Blasio was loud, clear and over 40,000-strong at City Hall today - "Save Our Horses."

Three months after the Daily News kicked off its campaign to stop de Blasio's proposed ban on the horse-drawn carriages, over 100 supporters rallied on de Blasio's door step to drop off five bags of signed petitions supporting the industry.

The bags, which were hand-delivered to de Blasio's office by drivers, contained some 40,000 signatures from Daily News readers begging the mayor to back off the ban.
