A beautifully made scale model of a 19th Century Cocking Cart with driver and horse, one of a collection shown
on the following pages.
These carts were designed to transport fighting cocks but, like dog carts, developed into pleasure carts and were rarely used for their original purpose. Two drivers could drive the cart in tandem, seated side by side with a seat behind for the groom. Being very tall, the cart could quickly become unstable.
