The „Spyder” carriage, also known as the „Spider Phaeton,” was a special type of carriage primarily used for fast rides and recreational jaunts. The name „Spyder” refers to its lightweight construction and characteristic, narrowing sides resembling spider legs. This carriage was popular in the 19th and early 20th centuries, especially during the heyday of the fashion for fast horse rides. Typically featuring a light, open construction, it was suitable for swift movement through city streets or countryside. The „Spyder” carriage was also frequently used in equestrian sporting competitions such as horse races.
