Category:Troikas (horse driving)

Deutsch: Als Troika (Dreigespann) wird eine besonders für Russland typische Bespannung von Wagen oder Schlitten mit drei Pferden bezeichnet.

Troika (тройка in Russian) is a three-horse drawn sled or carriage that entered vogue in Russia at the start of the 19th century and became a widespread subject of paintings. It is distinguishable from normal three-abreast arrangements by that the middle horse is tacked in shaft bow harness, while the side horses are not. The preferable style to drive a troika would be such that the side horses are at canter or gallop, and the middle one at trot.
