Grab your naayyyybors, friends, and family because Carolina Horse Park’s Painted Ponies have migrated back to Downtown Southern Pines for the winter. These fiberglass beauties are painted by local artists, sponsored by local businesses, and will be on display up and down Broad St. from February 4 to April 5.
We complied a sneak peek couch tour of all 14 ponies complete with their names, picture, and sponsors. In case you find viewing them from your linen steed—our fav place to appreciate them from, particular in pjs and with a family sized bag of Doritos in hand—isn’t doing the experience justice we also included their location.
