Pioneer Forecart

 Pioneer Forecarts were originally designed to be used as a farm implement for horses but they are also used for training, exercising horses, pleasure driving or what we call toolie-crashing (off road). These forecarts will go most anywhere! You can now order sled runners for winter use, a blade for leveling ground or scrapping snow and a cargo tray for carrying extra items with you on your drive. Call 406-846-3686 for prices. We will not be able to quote shipping costs on the phone - rates depend on what your order and where you live.  - Also see Pioneer Wagons for ponies, horses/mules and draft horses.

   Now in five sizes - Heavy Duty, Standard, Haflinger and the newer Summit Forecart in Standard and Heavy Duty!

  Other options including seat cover, sun shade, cup holder, etc. Click on the blue fast links for these options.
The Standard fore cart and Heavy duty fore cart are built the same with the exception of having heavier spindles and a five-bolt pattern wheel on the heavy duty fore cart and the option to have hydraulic brakes.

The Standard Cart comes with either the Implement seat (as in picture on the left) or bench seat (pictured on the right): pneumatic tires or steel tires (not pictured) All other options need to be ordered separately. Pictured below is the Heavy Duty Forecart, bench seat, cushions, hydraulic brakes, cargo tray, lights and battery, tongue, neck yoke and double trees. Along side it is the Shafts for a single horse. The guard in front of the driver is also pictured and required if you are using this with horses. New!! The Pioneer fore cart is now standard with a poly bench seat. It is sturdier than the wood and never needs painting.

This is the Heavy Duty Forecart with tongue, neck yoke, double trees, cargo tray, light package and shafts.

 The Pioneer Forecart has transformed into a classic looking pleasure or training cart.
 Click here for the Ordering information and Specs sheet. Now you can order a seat cover, Sun Shade, Reese Hitch, LED lights with battery, and also new is a Rubber Torsion Axle option available on the Heavy Duty Draft, Haflinger and Pony forecarts with the Hydraulic brakes!
