      Keith, yes…some settlements do…the more conservative ones tend not to, more progressive seem to allow it…it varies widely and wildly!

    They should put a convertable top on that buggy for bad weather and sun. I would pay to take a ride in it!

    Use 2 or 4 miniature horses to be able to see ahead of you.

    In the Old Order German Baptist Brethren community there was a man who built a special buggy. It was low to the ground made with motorcycle wheels and tires and it was mean to transport a number of people. You stepped into it from the back, or short step and it seated maybe 8 people, four on each side.

      Judy – Welcome! Rubberized tire usage varies from settlement to settlement, some Amish communities do use them on their buggies, others don’t…just depends on how conservative the settlement is and Flat Rock is not really all that conservative. – Kevin

    Thank you for posting this. I happen to live in Flat Rock, although their settlement is actually about 10 miles from where I live. I wonder if this is near the Amish store? I’ll have to keep a close lookout next time I drive in that area.

      Welcome, Susan…aren’t you lucky, I LOVE the Flat Rock Amish settlement. And, yes, this was very close to the Amish store, so keep an eye out for golf cart buggies!:)
