    Default Anyone know what this is?

    A friend's father liked to restore old horse drawn vehicles. He recently passed away, leaving behind this:

    They are not horsey in the slightest and have no idea what it is or what to do with it. I thought it looked like an old sulky, but since I don't drive I couldn't really tell them for sure.

    Thoughts?

    the seat looks like what we called a Jog Cart, but the large wheels are usually for roads or outside of the ring . Very desirable, should be easy to sell in the right market.

    Google: Breaking Cart, same as Jog Cart but bigger wheels for stability. The main use is training horses to pull a cart.

    The snazzy paint job makes me think it was used for showing.

    Looks like an antique road cart to me.

    Thanks, very helpful information.

    As far as I know, it wasn't used for showing. Her dad didn't have horses that I know of. This was the last one he finished before he died.

    Worry is the biggest enemy of the present. It steals your joy and keeps you very busy doing absolutely nothing at all... it’s like using your imagination to create things you don’t want.
