The Ideal Series pays homage to the stunning artwork of renowned equine artist Orren Mixer (1920-2008). Each hand-painted piece in this series takes inspiration from one of Mixer’s famed “ideal” horse breed paintings.

Throughout his career, seven horse breed associations commissioned Orren to paint their breed’s ideal look. These images are still in use today and cement Mixer’s place as one of history’s preeminent equine artists.

Formed in 1954, the Pony of the Americas Club, Inc. (POAC) was created by breed founder Les Boomhower to promote a “using type” pony for youth. POAs range in height from 46 to 56 inches and have a balanced appearance along with Appaloosa coloring.

While their Appaloosa lineage is apparent, Arabian, Welsh, Native American pony, and Quarter Horse bloodlines also contributed to giving the POA its trademark look of a refined “little horse.”

When the POAC and Orren Mixer connected, the result was a stunning painting showcasing the breed’s beauty and versatility.
