Plainsmen use drag-cradles to transport people unable to walk or ride an aquar, and to carry baggage. Essentially a drag-cradle is a stretcher one end of which is attached to a saddle-chair, and the other which drags along the ground. I made the model shown above as a way to explore the way saddle-chairs, drag-cradles and other Plainsman aquar equipment worked.
