IVC Carriage (formerly known as Iowa Valley Carriage) - Equestrian Driving Equipment

Lightning High Bar Marathon Carriage

The Lightning High Bar Marathon Carriage is an adaption of the popular lighter weight Lightning (formerly known as the Falcon).

It is available for the less able-bodied driver by featuring an additional step in the back to be considerably easier on the knees and a higher grab handle behind the seat to allow the driver to pull up with the high bar.

A dickey seat is not offered, as it reduces the ability of the driver to mount the carriage from the rear.
