About Grey Horse Candle Company
A BRIEF HISTORY
Candles have always been special to me. Growing up, my grandmother was my favorite person in the world, and I visited her house every second I could. Her house always smelled lovely, and she always had a great candle burning in the family room. There was a local candle and gift shop that we visited frequently, it was our special place. Every visit, I would get a new candle for my collection, and together we tried out every scent the shop had to offer! I have now carried my love of candles with me into my adult life. There is something so comforting about the glow and scent of a good candle.
Grey Horse Candle Company started as a project to make candles for Christmas gifts for my close friends and family. It wasn't but a few weeks after the first candles were made, people who saw and smelled my gifted candles were asking to buy some of their own. The demand grew more, so I decided to try my candles out at a small local craft fair. I took 50 candles with me and sold out within the first two hours of the fair, coming home with a waiting list for more! After much trial and error, I finally figured out what I think is the recipe for the perfect candle, and have decided to share my passion with the rest of the world through my ETSY shop! I know you will love Grey Horse Candles. I hope you will try one and let my candles bring a little horsey love into your home!

THE NEW OWNER OF THE GREY HORSE COMPANY JULY 2019
My name is Ashley Hall, and I just recently became the new owner of Grey Horse Candle Company! I wanted to take a moment and introduce myself to my wholesale customers and answer some questions that you may have...
I purchased Grey Horse Candle Company from its wonderful founder, Kayla Casura, a couple of weeks ago. Originally started in eastern Tennessee three years ago, GHCC now calls Winter Park, Florida, home. Our Central Florida location puts us approximately halfway between Ocala and Wellington, and just minutes from Orlando!
A little about me - Having grown up on a horse farm in Maryland, I have always had a deep love and appreciation for the equestrian life. I grew up riding Hunter-Jumpers, but just last year started Dressage, and I am loving it! I have my Degree in Interior Design, and I am also the proud owner of Equestrienne Decor. When I'm not working, you can find me at the barn, or enjoying time boating or on the baseball fields with my three beautiful boys.
For me, Grey Horse Candle Company represents the passion we all have for horses and the equestrian lifestyle. I am committed to preserving and building upon the valued heritage of GHCC. You can expect to receive the same quality and original scents, and each candle will continue to be made by hand using the same exclusive ingredients developed by Kayla. My goal is to provide an excellent service for all of my wholesale customers, who have helped GHCC become what it is today.
