Nestled in the foothills of Connecticut, The Gifted Pony owes its beginnings to an environment rich with the sights and sounds of the country. Horses, sheep, cattle and various forms of farming abound and intermix even in the more populated areas. If you look long enough, you can see how old rock walls divided the land parcels and functioned as paddocks next to barns which have long since melted into the years.
What is especially evident here is the care and interest folks have with their animals. With so many disciplines to choose from, so are the many needs created to serve them. These solutions are reflected in the home, the land and the people. Wherever possible, local artisans combine craft with quality, nodding back to a simpler time, while also adding in the innovation of this modern age.
Artist, equestrian and product concept developer Robin Morris founded The Gifted Pony, LLC and is the driving force behind it. Supporting family, friends, a stellar collection of artisans, and a bunch of enthusiastic fans make up the majority of folks who create items to sell and the services to make them happen.
The Gifted Pony has brought together a variety of artisan innovations, classic design, quality collectibles, vintage and one-of-a-kind treasures, and let’s not forget a fair dose of fun! Find out what makes the folks here unique, while connecting form, function and beauty with those who appreciate horses, one creative idea at a time.
