Throughout our history, Wells Fargo has depended on horses to deliver for customers. Horses led the Wells Fargo wagon through thousands of communities, and pulled Wells Fargo stagecoaches – and continue to do so today. To salute their service,
Wells Fargo has produced plush ponies, each for a limited time.

Meet our ponies!
