From the Trail of Painted Ponies (37th Release) Fall 2015 Collection, Heart of Gold.Made of stone resin. Measures 7" tall. Designed by artist, Steve Riecksk.
Watching a horse and handicapped rider work together at an Equine Therapeutic Ranch, this artist from Parker, Colorado was so impressed with the horse’s compassionate manner and seeming desire to improve the quality of life for its rider, he was moved to create a design for a Painted Pony that represented the horse’s giving and caring nature. To illustrate and symbolize these endearing qualities, he came up with the idea of a Pony embossed with a golden heart with wings.
