American Hitch Wagon

Known around home as the 'Show Wagon', our Hitch Wagon was built by leading wagon makers in the Amish community of the United States of America.

Constructed around 1987, this wagon was specifically built for use with the famous DB Draught Clydesdales. Upon arriving to New Zealand the wagon was used extensively throughout the country behind the company's team of 6 or 8 Clydesdales.

Pirongia Clydesdales retained the wagon when DB disbanded their team. It is now in popular demand for weddings and public events with a two or a four horse team.

Built with oak and hickory hardwood and brass finishings, this wagon is extremely impressive and makes a grand appearance at any event. Seats up to 12 passengers.

European Wagonette

The wagonette is a recent addition to our carriage family. Built in Poland in 2013, this carriage has been built to our exact requirements and boasts both a traditional design combined with the latest in carriage building technology.

Finished in highly vanished Ash wood, the carriage features stainless steel fittings and beautiful burgundy leather upholstery. This carriage seats four passengers and is drawn by a pair of our Friesian horses. It is the perfect choice for the smaller wedding, wine trails and pleasure drives.

Express Wagon

This beautifully-restored New Zealand farm wagon was one of the last horse drawn wagons to be built by coachbuilders, Cooper & Curd of Pukekohe, in 1942. It was used in Cambridge to carry cream cans from a farm to the Rotorangi Dairy Factory.

This wagon was owned by the late Gilbert Cooper and is now in custodianship with Pirongia Clydesdales. It is used for heritage events and special occasions. This wagon can be drawn by a pair of Clydesdales or Friesian horses.

Our newly constructed passenger wagon was also beautifully handcrafted in Poland. Built to the very highest spec, this beautiful vehicle seats up to 14 adults and can be drawn by two Clydesdales, or the two Friesian horses.

The wagon has a large canopy to keep passengers dry, and also has its own party table. It is a very comfortable and stylish wagon for all public work!
