The Bird-in-Hand Wheelchair Accessible Carriage is primarily manufactured for use in therapeutic driving centers and for drivers and riders who use wheelchairs. The front seat is removable so that a wheelchair occupant can either drive or ride. The rear ramp can be stored in an upright position, which allows a wheelchair occupant to face forward or sideways in the back of the carriage with an assistant. The Wheelchair Accessible Carriage offers wonderful therapy to those who have limited mobility. Driving a horse and carriage has a calming effect that is not present when traveling in motorized vehicles.
