    Default Meadowbrook type cart?

    I'm looking for an easy entry cart that is a sort of Meadowbrook wannabe. Budget is $1500, for a pony. Any suggestions?

    Where are you located? Shipping adds a lot to cost- so if you could get it close to home you'd have a lot to work with.

    Default meadowbrook cart

    I had a Meadowbrook cart custom made for a 17 hand percheron mare for $2000 canadian. Given the extra amount of wood, bigger wheels, special access step, height adjustment that it took to make one to fit her $1500 for a pony version sounds like a somewhat reasonable target. Depending on where you are located the Amish or Mennonites would be a good starting point. My cart was built by Mennonites near Guelph, Ontario.

    Remudamom, you should definitely and easily be able to find a pony size Meadowbrook for $1500. I paid $1200 for mine to fit a 12.2pony, and only $900 for the one to fit my 16.2hand horse.

    The EZ entry "meadowbrook wannabe" carts, like this one:

    Almost seem to be more expensive!

    But you can find them.

    This place carries them:

    Again, shipping or logistics of picking it up will add to expense. I would check CL for local ads near you.

    what is your location
    it makes a difference on how/where you can find used but good quality vehicles

    one of the best resources is local clubs with drivers
    their newsletters frequently have used vehicles available

    Ended up ordering the Easy Entry from Pam Southward. It looks Meadowbrookish. I went about $200 over budget but I think I'll be very happy with it. Here is the site. I opted out of the extended floor but I'm getting the dashboard, rein rail and wooden slats on the armrest. Pam was really helpful.
