we welcome all inquiries!

Each wedding is truly unique.  We're here to put the exclamation point on your special day!

Presenting horse-drawn transportation at its finest, specializing in weddings,

proms, parades, civic events, and dignified funeral service.  

We're based in Ocala Florida, recently relocating from Lexington Kentucky,

proudly serving Ocala, The Villages, Lady Lake, Gainesville, and all of North Central Florida

with attention to every detail.  


There IS a difference in the wedding carriage company you choose.  

Destiny Horse and Carriage is the only local member of C O N A, the Carriage Operators of North America.  

C O N A is committed to promoting the humane and caring welfare of carriage horses,

along with quality customer service, and "safety first" for all involved.


We are proud of our record in Kentucky, as the vendor of choice for venues like Talon Winery,

voted "best in weddings", chosen by the Kentucky Horse Park for their off-site events,

and to carry KY Governor Beshear's family in the inaugural parade,

and country music star Eddie Montgomery in Perryville's, commemoration event.

We also appeared in episodes of VH-1 TV / WE Channel's reality series, "My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding"

at Keeneland race course, and "My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding" for TLC, filmed in Louisville.  

We're excited for new partnerships and clients, returning to our home state of Florida.


In years past, we were also the vendor of choice for South Florida venues like

the Boca Raton Resort and Club, Jacaranda County Club, and the Biltmore.


Laura Walker Wood Covell is the owner, carriage driver, and full time caregiver of the horses,

easy to communicate with and responsive, so you know each aspect of your event

will be well coordinated, and picture perfect.


The carriage is always clean and beautifully decorated with silk flowers to match your colors.

 The horse is a white Percheron draft breed who loves her job!  She's not only our beloved carriage horse,

but a member of the family.  She gets regular vet and farrier visits, and is up to date on all health certificates. 


Carriage horses are like many other service animals such as police dogs, seeing eye dogs, show horses and race horses.  They get the best of care, and truly enjoy having a purpose in life.


Destiny Horse and Carriage is a female owned and operated business,

and your wedding specialist since 2005
