Carriage Driving

Do you have a love of horses and an interest in expanding your skills and knowledge of equestrian sports?  If so, carriage driving might be for you.  At Valkyrie’s Haven, we believe that carriage driving is a fantastic way to expand your relationship with your equine. Carriage driving can be enjoyed with single or multiple horses, ponies or VSEs and often allows horse lovers to extend their years of actively working horses for pleasure or competition.   

Valkyrie’s Haven offers a specialized opportunity for training and education of the horse and driver.  Our main goals are instilling safety, proficiency and the competitive edge with our clients.  Our facility offers a training venue for carriage or combined driving, as well as events and clinics.  For the competitive driving enthusiast, we can assist you in finding a trainer that fits your needs and provide the facilities to take lessons, practice in our arena, on our cones course or drive our cross country marathon obstacle course.

Valkyrie’s Haven is a privately owned combined driving facility.  Located near the Kentucky Horse Park, Valkyrie’s Haven offers training facilities focused on equine driving and conditioning.  We provide a family, friendly culture environment, where everyone looks out for one another. Over 150 acres with groomed trails and driving obstacles offer conditioning and skill challenges from novice training to advanced.  Conveniently located in Paris, Kentucky, Valkyrie’s Haven is close to several competitive venues in the greater Lexington area.
