Painted Pony in downtown Southern Pines NC

If you enjoyed the Painted Ponies display in downtown Southern Pines this spring, they will be available via a live online auction, June 17-20. The impact of COVID-19 forced organizers to move the auction from an actual site to online, but these amazing works of art are available to own. Proceeds from the online auction will support Carolina Horse Park (CHP) educational and environmental programs.

A total of 10 painted ponies are up for auction and will support the CHP’s mission for preserving open space, to maintain an exceptional equestrian competition facility, enhance the area’s residential community and contribute to a growing economy. Anyone wishing to bid on the painted ponies must register first. For more information and to register for the Painted Ponies Live Auction, click here.

The Park is now the region’s primary facility for equestrian events with 315 acres hosting over 28 competitions each year. Their calendar also includes non-equestrian events including environmental education and community scholastic and athletic experiences. Part of CHP’s mission is to preserve Southern Pines’ heritage as an equestrian haven surrounded by attractive open space.
