Trail of the Painted Ponies - A Star is Born Christmas Ornament
The Trail of Painted Ponies has stampeded into American Art History as one of the most successful public art projects of all time! Born and bred in Santa Fe, this wildly popular public art project invited artists to let their imaginations run wild and transform life-size horse sculptures into stunning original works of art. These dazzling Painted Ponies were exhibited throughout the state of New Mexico and they enchanted hundreds of thousands of people and reinvigorated tourism, while raising awareness and funds for worthy non-profit organizations.
Shown here is Star is Born.

Tribute to the Appaloosa Horse…
Each Spring, a ritual is reborn across the great plains, as Appaloosa mares give birth to the next generation of foals. These majestic horses were beloved by Native Americans, and were prized for their bold colors and brave hearts. “A Star is Born,” captures this breathtaking renewal of life as a mother proudly welcomes her beautiful baby.
