Everyone who knows Carol agrees that she's a special kind of horsewoman. Carol's knowledge of horses is the kind that comes from a lifetime of experience and friendship - and it shows in her bronzes.

Many of Carol's regular bronzes have been used for major event awards.

Have a special idea in mind? Contact Carol, and have a custom bronze of your "Best Horse" made - or have Carol patina your horse's markings on one of the bronzes already sculpted.
