What Type of Buggies, Carriages And Wagons Do Amish Use?
CLOSED CARRIAGE – This is the typical Amish buggy you will see traveling our country roads in the colder months. The carriages are designed to provide privacy for the family. This specific style is not designed for “sightseeing”.
AMISH BUGGIES – There are many different types of Amish buggies that a family may own. An Amish family may own several styles of carriages and carts and use a different one depending on weather, travel or transport needs.
Different style carriages include:
- “Sunday” carriage (the typical closed carriage)
- Market wagon/pick-up (2 seater with open bed in back for large item transport)
- Spring wagon (open carriage with side seating in back)
- Spring carts (a two-wheeled cart)
- Pony carts (2 or 4-wheeled carts designed for ponies and miniature horses
“An Amish buggy ride is like teleporting to the past. It was so wonderful to have this experience.”
COME ONE COME ALL!
- If you have a large group, a large family, or a group of friends who want to ride together, we have these larger open wagons available. This wagon was actually made in 1886
