ST. LOUIS (AP) - An aide to St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says the city is “not even close” on deciding if a ban of carriage rides will take place.

City Health Director Pam Walker proposed a ban earlier this month after encountering a horse that was breathing hard after completing a ride. Walker said she lacked the authority to ban carriage rides, but decided stricter regulations were necessary.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/WysIea ) reports that Maggie Crane, spokeswoman for Slay, says Walker soon will give the mayor a presentation on the situation, but there is no timetable for a decision on whether a ban is necessary or appropriate.
