Pleasure or competition cart for sale

Wooden cart for medium to large, cob-size pony or small horse. Previously used for combined driving competitions and pleasure driving with a 13-hand pony. Would fit 13-14.2 hand pony or small, compact horse (Fjord size) depending on build and proportions. My pony was a solidly built Appaloosa with a fairly big rump and I was competing in New England combined driving events. I am selling it because I no longer have horses.

Cart style is a modified Meadowbrook/road cart type body (no fenders, whip rail or glove box). It has always been stored indoors but could use a fresh coat of paint on body and shafts. High-quality wood wheels with steel hub and rubber tire. Seat is upholstered with black vinyl and folds down. Wheels are gloss finish in burgundy color.

  • Wheel height : 39″
  • Wheel base width : from wheel to wheel 49″, with axle 58″
  • Shaft length : 72″
  • Shaft width : at back 32″, at narrowest point in front 24″
  • Shaft height from ground when level : 35″
  • Cart body dimensions : 46″ long, 37″ wide, 23″ high (floor to seat).
  • Seat width : 37″
  • Seat back height (in upright position) : 12″
