Just imagine how delightful your holiday season will be this year when you trim your Christmas tree with painted ponies ornaments. Each ornament is created and hand painted by artists from around the United States. At All Things Equine, we have two of these one of a kind ornaments Ė Noel and Dashing through the Snow. Both ornaments were designed and painted by Karlynn Keyes and Bryn Wilkins Lawson.
Karlynn is the President of the Trail of Ponies. She brings a timeless style to every painted pony ornament she works on. Bryn, vice president and creative director of The Trail of Painted Ponies, often works with Karlynn to create painted pony ornaments.
The two artists used Pere Noel, the father of Christmas in France, as inspiration when creating the Noel ornament. According to legend, children in France left their shoes alongside the fireplace in hopes that Pere Noel would reward their good behavior with treats. This hand made work of art features a white horse, decorated with a green sash and a red bow, and sits upon a rocker that is holding presents. All of our painted ponies ornaments come in Christmas tins, so youíll always have a place to store your ornament.
The Dashing through the Snow ornament is reminiscent of playing in the snow as a young child. This gray pony features red details such as his saddle, reigns, a bow on his tail, and sashes around his ankles. True to his name, Dashing through the Snow has a trail of snowballs flowing down his thick grayish white mane. If you listen close enough, you can almost hear the bells jingling on these painted ponies ornaments.
There are certain precautions to take with your ornaments to ensure theyíre safe and youíre able to enjoy them for years to come.

You can also use them as a pull for a ceiling fan, to tie back curtains, or hang them as a decoration in a window or doorway.
