Carriages & Harness Auctions


The world-famous Reading Carriage Sales have been in operation for over 60 years. There are now three sales annually in Reading, with an additional one each summer in the north of England.
Over the years, carriages, sets of harness, sundry accoutrements and anything else related to the art of carriage driving have been bought and sold by clients from around the globe.  Heavy Horse vehicles, harness, and related items are also included, plus general Saddlery & Tack.

As well as those looking to buy and sell their items, the sales provide an important meeting place for driving and equestrian enthusiasts. All sales will be online as well as live.

Carriages News

With so-called “freedom day” scheduled for the 19th July after which it will be possible to hold auctions with no restrictions on attendance, and assuming that Covid related restrictions do not have to be reintroduced, we will be having a live Carriage sale on Wednesday 27th October. 

We very much hope that by then we will have seen a return of confidence and that it will be possible for us all to plan ahead for a “business as usual” 2022 season. 

Entries for the sale will be needed by Friday 10th September. 

We look forward to renewing old acquaintances and making new ones on the 27th October.
