Running Horse Studio appears many places online.


Many people have invested themselves in their carousel collections and pieces. As we grow older, there are fears that our children or others may simply sell off all that we have spent our lives accumulating and appreciating. Lourinda Bray is in the process of founding a major carousel museum and carousel exhibition center to protect and present carousel figures and all who appreciate them in a highly favorable light via education and showcase. Like many people who are passionate for the carousel animal, Lourinda does not want carousel pieces or the experience of experiencing them forgotten by children who may never ride, or adults who wax nostalgically for them. If you would like more information on preserving your carousel legacy beyond your years, please contact us for a confidential consultation. 


You will be glad you did. Thank you for visiting today.
