The Trail of Painted Ponies celebrates the magic of the horse as an artistic

canvas, the rich culture of America, and the unique talents of independent

artists. The artists behind this exquisite collection come from all different

backgrounds, and the inspirational stories behind each design are as heartfelt

as they are beautiful. The Battle of Bear Paw was the final engagement of the

Nez Perce War of 1877. Following a 1,200-mile running battle from Western

Idaho into Montana, the U.S. Army finally managed to corner the Nez Perce

tribe, who were led by Chief Joseph and whose surrender speech famously ended

with the words "From where the sun now stands I will fight no more forever."

Known for their distinctively spotted horses, the Nez Perce were assured they

would be allowed to keep their prized herd of nearly a thousand mounts, but it

was a promise that was broken. It wouldn't be until 1937 that the tribe

initiated a selective breeding program that brought the Appaloosa back to

life.
