This might be perfect solution for show horse owners looking for a better way to transport horses, tack and take along a show buggy.

Four wheel show buggy with shaves completely disassembles and packs into a horse trailer friendly travel crate that fits in a trailer tack room or up over a fifth wheel storage compartment.

Horse owners from all over have ongoing discussions and debates on the best way to carry a traditional show buggy with horses and all the tack that they will need at the horse show all in to one horse trailer.

It seems up until now the only solution has been to haul the buggy on another trailer or take up extra space that could otherwise be used for extra horses or to hang and strap on the back of the trailer.

Some have placed the buggies up on top of the trailers, but that is not convenient and leaves the buggy vulnerable to low clearances and the elements.

Those who do hang the buggies on the back of the trailer often will spend considerable time at the show cleaning the buggy after getting caught in a down pour or other elements.

The vortex created at the back of the trailer during rains and other nasty weather just seems to coat every square inch of the buggy.

Tarps help but with these flapping in the wind they can also become annoying.

The buggy on the back of the trailer also slows down access to get into the horses quickly if they need to be rescued in an accident.

The Amish built collapsible buggy from Cottage Craft Works just maybe the solution. It comes complete with its own travel crate.

The crate is fitted with packing quilts and special made packing socks to store all the buggy parts without scratching.

The buggy comes apart to tucks neatly into a 63” long X 36”wide X 22-1/2” tall plywood packing crate.

Even the 93” long shaves come apart to fit in the crate with the buggy.

The buggy box is equipped with the running gear bolted on to the bottom.

Special axle inserts slide in and lock with a clevis pins, while the wheels slide on and lock into place with a spring clip pins.

Once the buggy is up righted the hinged sides fold up to allow access to the dash board and then the seat is set into place and clipped down..

The shaves slide in and are also locked with clevis pins. The shaves are also equipped with loops for show harness.

Two people can unpack assemble hitch and be in the arena in less than 10 minutes, and then crate and pack up the buggy in the same time frame.

Every part of the buggy has been designed around both portability and functionality.

This buggy doesn't skimp on size either.

Once assembled it will look just like a regular show buggy with a 5’ wide wheel base.

The buggy will accommodate 54”-55” pony size all the way up to full size horses.

Seat is a comfortable 35” wide.

Wood oak veneer buggy box is stained and varnished with a special hard and durable varnish coating. All the exposed wood edges are protected with a rubber “U” shaped edge.

The metal hardware is powder coated, hickory wood shaves are painted gloss black to match the running gear.

Canvas covers behind the seat to hide the feet and legs, and a catch pan are all included.

For an item built this special and engineered to be taken apart, you might expect that it would cost nearly double to one that is built all as one.

Surprisingly this Amish built buggy is priced right at or well below other custom show buggies even including the shipping.

Ships in the same crate truck freight for $250 anywhere in the US or you can pick up at the Amish shop in Indiana.
