The Trail of Painted Ponies Quarter Horse is a limited edition figurine produced as part of the The Trail of Painted Ponies series.

 

Background

The Quarter Horse was designed by the American artist Kathy Morawski for the Trail of Painted Ponies project in 2002. It was created to reflect an idea of national allegiance, and aimed specifically at American collectors.

The entire range of Painted Ponies was finally retired in 2010, and all of the figurines have now become sought after by collectors.

The Trail of Painted Ponies Quarter Horse

The model was issued in summer 2003 as part of the second release of figurines, and retired in September 2004 after reaching a production figure of 6,800 on its second edition.

The hand-painted resin model measures 6” tall, and is based on the design of a United States Quarter coin. This includes the text “United States of America” along with the Latin motto “E pluribus unum” (meaning "Out of many, one") and the image of the American Eagle. These aspects are shaped around the features of the horse, which also has a skin texture and colour similar to the coin.

How much is a Trail of Painted Ponies Quarter Horse worth?

The Quarter Horse figurine is one of the earlier Painted Ponies, and as such is sought after by collectors. Low figure first-edition examples are the most valuable, with NIB (New In Box) figurines selling through specialist dealers for up to $400 each.

Similar examples can be found on auction sites such as eBay for around $150 - $200.
