These painted horses are the Riding Corner's new obsession. We love them as collectibles, to give as gifts, to paint ourselves, to add to horse party centerpieces, and even to use as a cornerstone in a campaign to raise awareness and funds for equestrian related causes.

The Trail of Painted Ponies Figurines

Among the globe's most cherished collectibles, The Trail of Panted Ponies classic figurines are created by distinguished artists exclusively for Trail of Painted Ponies[,;.;; each work of art is crafted with exquisite detail into a resin or ceramic figurine that stands approximately 6″ tall.
There have been 202 Painted Ponies figurines in total crafted to date including 28 Holiday Painted Ponies, 9 Exclusive Painted Ponies, 4 Four Seasons Collection Painted Ponies, 1 Masterpiece Collection Pony and 2 Celebrity Collection figurines.
Generally The Trail of Panted Ponies announces their winter release on January 1. The Spring Release is announced on March 1 (except the Spring 2011 Release, which is announced on April1), the Summer Release is announced on June 1, and the Fall Release is announced on September 1. Each release includes four new Painted Ponies, and the Summer Release also includes four new Holiday Ponies. The first number on the bottom of the Painted Pony is the Edition Number. This number will have an “E” after it (example: 1E, 2E, 3E). The second number refers to the number of that particular Painted Pony in reference to the Edition that it was created in. This number will be between 1 and 10,000, since there are 10,000 Painted Ponies in each Edition. Twice a year The Trail of Panted Ponies retires a minimum of six Painted Ponies – or as they prefer to say, “We put them out to pasture.” They make the announcement on February 1 and July 1. When a figurine is retired it is no longer crafted, effectively turning it into a limited edition.
Autographed Editions are also available and were created as a way of giving collectors the opportunity to collect something special. Each is hand-signed and numbered by the artist who created the original Painted Pony, and are available with each new release.
