These two photos were taken in the "Carriage Museum" of the Vatican Museums (an underground bunker with old papal carriages and autos).

SMJ,
Then by all means let him use it.
Subito !

Anon,
During the 1974 fuel crisis, Paul VI did use a pony and trap, but most definitely not a carriage dating from the days of the Papal States !
