Title says it all; what cities have the Horse-Drawn Carriages taking pedestrians on a stroll through the city/city parks?

Obviously NYC has a ton of them, Chicago also has a good amount, are there any other cities?

terrible practice because of the propensity that the hard surfaces lead to hoof and leg problems for the horse, shake my head and say a silent wish that involves a kick to the groin whenever I see these d-bag drivers and their d-bag passengers riding in these carriages.

A lot of cities have horse drawn carriages of some kind. I can't say I've seen many with the cab roof.

Apparently they exist here in San Francisco, but I don't believe I've ever seen one. Then again I almost never visit Fisherman's Wharf.
