The Bird-in-Hand Large Wagonette Wagonette is wonderful for everyday use with pairs or four- in-hand as an alternative to larger and heavier special occasion coaches. It is great to drive to the races, take on a hunt, or go on a pleasure drive. Engineered to make tight turns when necessary, the Large Wagonette maneuvers well through forest trails. Both the Lightweight and Large Wagonettes are the perfect carriages to drive in Acadia National Park in Maine. They are also built for show or commercial use.

The Large Wagonette can be designed with walk-through seating up front. You can climb on the back, walk between the seats, and step up to the front where the seat is divided. A compartment can be added behind the seat and a cooler in the floor. This carriage has a full fifth wheel with four elliptical springs that give it stability.

Enjoying a drive through the fall countryside with a Bird-in-Hand Wagonette are Kris Penrod and Whip Bonnie Evans. Kris owns the wagonette while the horse, a Buckskin Morgan mare named Baby, belongs to Bonnie. This custombuilt wagonette was made to fit perfectly in the horse trailer and is still as beautiful as the day it was purchased. This drive was the first time Baby was hitched to a four-wheel carriage. Bonnie relates, "She could not have responded better. The solid construction, balance, and smooth ride of the Bird-in-Hand Wagonette helped guarantee a successful first drive!"
