People used to use horses to pull carriages, buggies and sleighs for getting around in the late 1800's and early 1900's, just as we use cars today. These vehicles were mostly made of wood, and there were different types of vehicles for different occasions. Single-seated buggies were used to carry one or two people; double-seated buggies carried more people. Sleighs were used in the winter for travelling over snow and sometimes ice, and came in different sizes. Smaller sleighs were used to carry a few people, and large sleighs might be used for fun excursions in the wintertime. Carriages also came in different sizes, and different types were used for different occasions.
This picture shows a man and a woman in a sleigh. In the background, there is a big brown house and some really big trees. You can tell it is winter because of the white snow on the ground. Also, the sleigh doesn't have wooden wheels; it has sleigh runners instead. Sleigh runners are big metal rods that swerve up, and they are pretty fancy. They are a lot easier to ride on the snow than wheels because they are nice and smooth on the bottom. Nowadays, we would just have winter tires on our cars.
