There was a bigger and better carriage driving presence at the 2018 Rocky Mountain Horse Expo. We loaned a number of vehicles for the Colorado Driving Society’s carriage display. There was a focus on vehicles for entry level drivers, we included our Army Forecart, along with two “easy entry” style carts that we have recently completed. One was a 10 year old black metal miniature horse cart that had seen heavy use, with oxidized paint and faded upholstery. The other was a lightly used 5 year old red wood and metal pony cart. While this cart was in excellent condition, it had silver grey upholstery that did no justice to its cute country style.
Here are photos of the miniature cart’s restoration:
