The Compact Extreme

New time busting carriage in obstacles!

After extensive development and extreme testing by Rene and his team of international drivers and engineers, the Compact Extreme three phase carriage has emerged from the workshop.

This carriage’s special features include an extreme adjustable system to suit the horse, the driver, and each phase of the competition. It has a low centre of gravity to make it extremely stable at all speeds.

It has six-way adjustable shafts, the seat can be raised and lowered to suit the driver's preference for dressage, cones and obstacles.

This offers a unique driving advantage in cones competitions.  Its firm ground hugging stability is designed for extremely fast speeds around obstacles, indoor and outdoor, with a choice of two tyre profiles for superior grip.

The Compact Extreme is fully compliant with the rules of horse driving trials and comes in sizes to fit single horse, pony and Shetland.

Your own personal colour scheme, lamp holders and a large see-through spares holder are included in the price.  Additional extras such as the groom's seat, a second set of wheels, stainless steel wheels, shafts and sides can be custom made.

  • Adjustment to the width of the shafts
