The image of the standardbred trotter is Goshen’s most widely identified and beloved symbol of community pride. This memorable representation of the region’s contribution to a uniquely American-born sport is kept vivid by the Historic Harness Racing Track. The Painted Trotters of Goshen are a colorful and eclectically creative seasonal reminder of this living History.

The Painted Trotters of Goshen, a collaboration between Illuminate Goshen and the Goshen Art League, is a public art project currently marking its fourth year in the Village of Goshen’s business district.

The elegant Trotter silhouette was designed by local graphic designer and life-long horse enthusiast, June Evers of Horse Hollow Press, and is produced under the technical expertise of Jospeh Fedor of Goshen High School’s Art And Technology department.

The artists of the Goshen Art League are then invited to bring their personal and varied styles of artistry to creating these eye-catching and uniquely Goshen works of street art.

At the end of the season, the Painted Trotters are auctioned and the proceeds partially fund the project for the following season. 

We welcome you to visit the Village and enjoy the Painted Trotters of Goshen 2020.
