There IS a difference in the carriage company you choose.  

You should expect open communication, and response to your inquiry within 12 hours.

We are a proud member of C O N A, the Carriage Operators of North America since 2005.  

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.


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.

We are proud of our 10 year 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,

carrying incoming 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 American Gypsy Wedding" for TLC, filmed in Louisville.  


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.


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

 The horse is a white Percheron draft breed named Eli, who loves his job!  He's not only our much loved carriage horse, but a member of the family.  He gets regular vet and farrier visits, and is up to date on all health certificates. His former job was giving nightly carriage rides in San Antonio Texas.    


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.
