The Marathon Cart

The Bird-in-Hand Marathon Cart is very similar to the Meadowbrook Cart except that it has a straight shaft and is a lighter vehicle. A very versatile two-wheeled cart, it is used for training, exercising, and pleasure drives and is especially excellent for marathons. The natural wood stain and painted black iron make a striking contrast. The Marathon Cart is considered a starter carriage. It can be stripped down – no fenders and no dash – and used solely as a training cart.

Available in sizes to fit 13 to 18 hh

Approx. 280 lbs.
