Carriage From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A carriage is a horse-drawn vehicle, especially one designed for private passenger use and for comfort or elegance, though some are also used to transport goods. It may be light, smart and fast or heavy, large and comfortable. Carriages normally have suspension using leaf springs, elliptical springs (in the 19th century) or leather strapping. A public passenger vehicle would not usually be called a carriage – terms for these include stagecoach, charabanc and omnibus.

A four-wheeled vehicle that is not sprung is a wagon, used mainly for goods. An American buckboard or Conestoga wagon or "prairie schooner" is not a carriage – but a wagonette is a carriage, not a wagon.

The word carriage (abbreviated carr or cge) is from Old Northern French cariage, to carry in a vehicle. The word car, then meaning a kind of two-wheeled cart for goods, also came from Old Northern French about the beginning of the 14th century[1]; it was also used for railway carriages, and was extended to cover automobile around the end of the 19th century, when early models were called horseless carriages.

A carriage is sometimes called a team, as in "horse and team". A carriage with its horse is a rig. An elegant horse-drawn carriage with its retinue of servants is an equipage. A carriage together with the horses, harness and attendants is a turnout. A procession of carriages is a cavalcade.
