Photo Treasure Hunt!

The Trail of Painted Ponies began in Santa Fe, NM as a public art exhibition that invited artists to magically transform Original Life-size horse sculptures into mesmerizing works-of-art put on display across the state of New Mexico. In the end these amazing Original Painted Ponies were rounded up and auctioned to raise close to $100 million for worthy non-profit organizations. Many have wondered… Where are the Original Life-size Painted Ponies now?

Some are in private collections, but did you know many are featured across the country in Museums and special locations still on public display?

For those of you planning a road trip this Summer keep your eyes open for Original Life-size Painted Ponies during your travels. Check out these locations to see an Original Life-size Painted Pony in person and make sure to take a picture and share with us for a chance to win a $100 Gift Certificate to the Official Painted Ponies Store.
