CARRIAGE LANE STAFF

It is a love of horses and the effect they can have on people that has led Carriage Lane owners John and Tammie Conatser to devote their entire lives to the equine industry. John was "born into" the business, as the son of Hall of Fame trainer Marvin Conatser, and followed a path similar to that of many trainer's children.  After learning much of his craft from his father, John ventured out on his own, working at notable farms such as Seymour Farm, Bent Tree Farm and Man O'War Farm, focusing on the American Saddlebred and Hackney Pony breeds.

 

John's wife, Tammie Turner Conatser, is another lifelong Saddlebred and equestrian enthusiast and exhibitor. Tammie had a very distinguished amateur career, during which she won World's Championships as an Equitation and juvenile rider. Tammie is also a licensed attorney and joined John as a trainer at Carriage Lane when the operation moved to Nicholasville, Kentucky. Tammie has been largely responsible for expanding and managing the farm's successful breeding operation.  

 

 

During his professional career, John has trained over 75 World's and National Champion American Saddlebreds and Hackney Ponies. Both John and Tammie are licensed horse show judges and have officiated at some of the nation's top shows. John twice served as the state chairman of the United Professional Horseman's Association (UPHA) and as Chairman of the UPHA horse show held annually at the Kentucky Horse Park. Tammie currently serves as the President of the UPHA's National Board of Directors and heads the organization's UPHA Classics Committee.
