Meet Salem Peace Pony
Friends of Mark Hatfield
The first horse carried peace. As the original horse to be carved, Salem Peace Pony rode forward with an astonishing dream - the hope that a carousel could unite a community. This small, classic pony would lead the way for all others on Salem's Riverfront Carousel. With the first tentative chisel strikes, a horse finally gave form to what had once been only a heartfelt wish.
Crafted in a simple, flowing design inspired by one of America's original carousel companies, the lithe C.W. Parker-style horse wears our nation's colors and simple symbols of peace and goodwill.
