Saved from being destroyed in 2001, the paddy wagon was brought to the Ahmanson Equestrian Facility where it has resided since. This wagon dates back to the early 1900s and has held up remarkably well until the last few years. However, during these last few years the deterioration has become more noticeable and we are afraid that if we don't get it refurbished then we will lose a piece of mounted history. This wagon is a conversation piece and is the backdrop to many of the pictures of people who visit. As you can see in the pictures below the wood is rotting all throughout the wagon. With the money we raise we will be able to completely refurbish the wagon to almost new condition. This will hopefully allow us to keep the wagon for another 100 years. We hope people will be willing to help us fund the refurbishing of this great piece of history. All funds will go towards the refurbishing of this antique wagon.
