This sleigh model was also called a “sleigh à raquettes,” or snowshoe sleigh, after the two snowshoe-like extensions on its dash. It was built by Légaré et Latimer, a firm specializing in the sale of plows, carriages and agricultural equipment for Amable Bélanger (1846–1914) of Montmagny, founder of the Bélanger stove foundry that would become a small industrial dynasty in Quebec. Later renamed P.T. Légaré Limitée, the company was one of Quebec’s largest manufacturers and retailers, and among the first to use catalogues to sell its products.

See this trap sleigh as well as 17 other exquisite horse-drawn vehicles in Horse Power – The Paul Bienvenu Carriage Collection presented at the Museum until January 7, 2018.
