The Celts were experienced in breeding and training horses. As well as riding on horseback into battle, war chariots were developed to suit the small sturdy animals bred by the tribes. Charioteers were often professionals employed by chiefs to drive them into battle.

The Celtic Chariot is a simple and light construction providing a platform for the charioteer and a fighting companion to attack and retreat. Two small ponies are harnessed to an axle and framework supporting the fighting platform. The surrounding construction provided a little protection and a secure location to hold onto.
