The Trail Of Painted Ponies are gorgeous resin or porcelain figurines that were inspired back in 2001 as a public art display showing 6 life-size horses that were hand painted by remarkable artista from the U.S.
With well over 60 designs, each horse is unique with it's attention to detail and superb craftsmanship it's very easy to see why these guys have inspired so many people worlwide.
Not only can you buy the gorgeous figurines which come with a special hang tag, but you can also get mugs, plaques, lamps, ornaments, magnets, t-shirts, jewellery, DVD's etc.
There are even seasonal horses released, these being the Christmas ponies and they are just so amazing!
The official site www. trailofpaintedponies .com has all the information that one could need on collectin them. There are also a few books out there, one of which I have and just love to look at all the time. The artwork is just divine and I'm wasn't even an arty person...until now.
I also own the DVD which has some of the artista painting their horses, talking about the process and even footage of an auction that was held, you'd be surprised to know how much just one Painted Pony sold for!!!
Get on the Trail!
