Every few months here in Ireland I come across carts like you see in the video above. Made with bicycle wheels they are towed by horses. On several occasions I found it fun to see what kind of speed the guys sitting on them were doing. I got up to almost 30 mph before I found out! This was until I learned that this kind of activity (called sulky racing) was looked down upon by the Irish citizenry. I think the video above from this story will show you why...
btw: Traveller is the politically correct name for the gypsy community
