Carol Carpentier's interest in horses was passed down from her maternal grandfather, who was a coachman for Lady Buxton in England during the late 1800s. Young Carol was fascinated with his stories of rail travel throughout the U.K., which required him to load the team of horses onto a railcar along with the ornate carriage, and to care for them along the way.
Carol's sense of the equine spirit led to a successful career as an Arabian horse breeder for over forty years in Santa Cruz County in California. During that time she also worked as an equine veterinary assistant, and the combined careers allowed her to interact with a diverse complement of trainers, riders and breeders from all over the world.
Carol was born on Mare Island, California, to a U.S. Naval officer and his wife. The relocation of their small family every few years instilled in her a fondness for travel which she has shared with her husband, Bob, for 40 years. Carol and Bob now reside in Kissimmee, Florida, which serves as a sunny home base for their continued travels.
