Painted Ponies Art Walk
February 26 - April 2
Before golf in the Pinehurst, Southern Pines and Aberdeen area became the world-class and globally-recognized destination it is today, equestrian pursuits dominated the Sandhills region of North Carolina. And for the first time (in recent memory), ponies will roam the streets of downtown Southern Pines – Painted Ponies. The inaugural Painted Ponies Art Walk and Auction runs from February 8th through April 2nd as 10 five-foot tall fiberglass works of art will line Broad Street for all to view as visitors walk the downtown area. Visitors viewing the Painted Ponies Art Walk are asked to use the hashtag #PaintedPoniesCHP when taking pictures and posting them to social media. After the display is over, the ponies will be auctioned off with the proceeds benefiting the Carolina Horse Park Foundation’s educational and environmental programs.
