I am assuming that the 1E and 2E are edition numbers. I have 2 ponies from 2003 with no leading 1 or 2 before the serial number what does this mean?
Response From Trailmaster:
That means that these two Ponies were created before The Trail assigned edition numbers. They are rare, and in the eyes of serious collectors, they are considered most valuable.

I have item #12270, Summer Ballet, but base has no release numbers, can send image if needed ... is this item for real?
Response From Trailmaster:
To date, we have not experienced any knock-offs of Painted Pony figurines. On rare occasions, however, release numbers have been missing. Since they are numbered by hand, when this occurs it is usually due to human error.

Do you have a price list for painted ponies which are retired?
Response From Trailmaster:
There is no set price list for retired Painted Ponies. As with any retired collectible, pricing depends on a variety of factors. Popularity of the original design. How many were created. Edition number. Does it come with original packaging? Condition. How badly does someone want to add it to their collection.

Whats the difference between the standard ponie and blue ribbon edition
Response From Trailmaster:
The Blue Ribbon Edition consists of first edition Painted Ponies that are numbered 0001 through 0012. They are only available through the Official Trail of Painted Ponies Store. The Standard Edition refers to other high-quality castings that have open edition numbers.

Chris Ordway from Bakersfield. Ca wrote on August 15, 2019:
I have recently noticed on eBay there are some figurines for sale that have sample written where the edition number and production number should be. Are these bourses real?
Response From Trailmaster:
Yes. Before we proceed with the production of a Painted Pony, each goes through an approval process. We are sent a sample which we review with the artist. We have found that some collectors like to add these approved samples to their collection, which is what you are seeing on eBay.
