Product Description


Reclaimed horse cart drag shoe complete with chain
This cart drag shoe was used in years gone by as a brake for carts and carriages pulled by horses
It was particularly important on steep hills when the weight of the cart could push the horse over
The shoe would be fitted over the back wheel to stop it rotating and cause it to slow
Once at the bottom of the hill the drag shoe would be removed
This one is in good used condition, heavy and solid but fairly rusty (see photos)
At the time of listing we cannot find another one on the internet for sale – and we have two!
Please also see SKU: R4448
As well as the description we have taken 12 pictures, please look through them in detail
It’s certainly a collector’s item!
