The Bird-in-Hand Eagle is primarily designed for show, but is also an excellent choice for marathons. It is wonderful to use for combined driving events while still retaining the look of a traditional vehicle. With its lightweight Phaeton design, the Eagle has been driven for many occasions such as weddings and on Acadia National Park carriage roads. It is a great single vehicle and can also be used for pairs.
The Eagle is a popular vehicle because it can be used for pleasure driving, combined driving, show ring, and training. It lends itself well to modifications and individual adjustments, thus it can be a very personalized carriage. The interchangeable attachments make it a carriage that meets very specific needs. For example, the groom step, trunk box, or wicker basket are removable and it is available with a flat bed, wagonette seating, or a dickey seat.
