This Horses in the Wind Puzzle is a 19" round, random cut puzzle. Sunsout has a huge selection of round puzzles to choose from. I don't get to assemble too many round puzzles but I do enjoy them. When doing your first round puzzle it takes a little adjustment and sometimes it can be tricky to define the outside edge pieces. That said, they are not too difficult as I have seen many terrific ones in the social media. You may like this Running in the Sun puzzle Amazon Link

I did my usual sorting routine.
I started with the bright blue water at the bottom and center then towards the whites which included the white horse and the waterfalls. That left the white mountains with the orange specks. I moved to the greens followed by the browns and finally finishing the sky.
As mentioned earlier there are hidden horses painted within the image. Here is closeups of those images.
I'll have a 19" round please in a jigsaw puzzle with horses running in the wind!
Oh yah! This was a delightful puzzle to complete and it had the little extra of finding the hidden images of horses too.
I am a BIG fan of horses so when this pretty little 500 piece Sunsout by artist Jim Warren caught my eye at the Thrift store recently for $1.00 I could not resist.
I have completed and taped the back with wide packing clear tape so I can view it on the wall for my pleasure.
It has all the good quality of Sunsout and no missing pieces.....a real quick fix for the price.
This one is titled Horses in the Wind by Jim Warren

Well it's a keeper on my wall so I have to rate it 'green checkmark' of approval.

About: The Joy of Assembling Round Jigsaw Puzzles
Tips and Tricks
Introduction: Round jigsaw puzzles offer a unique and delightful puzzling experience, different from traditional rectangular puzzles. The absence of straight edges and the circular shape of the puzzle pieces present a new challenge and an exciting twist to the puzzling process. In this article, we will explore the process of assembling round jigsaw puzzles and provide helpful tips and tricks to enhance your puzzling experience.
Comparative Difference with Rectangular Puzzles: Round jigsaw puzzles offer a refreshing departure from rectangular puzzles. The absence of straight edges and the circular shape bring a new level of complexity and visual interest to the puzzling experience. While rectangular puzzles often rely on straight lines and edge matching, round puzzles challenge you to identify and connect intricate patterns and curves.
In round puzzles, the absence of corners eliminates the traditional corner-building strategy found in rectangular puzzles. Instead, you must rely on the interplay of shapes, colors, and patterns to find the correct placements. Round puzzle pieces also tend to have fewer orientation cues, requiring a more flexible and creative approach to assembling the image.
Conclusion: Assembling round jigsaw puzzles offers a unique and enjoyable puzzling experience. By sorting the pieces, focusing on patterns and colors, and working from the inside out, you can conquer the challenges that round puzzles present. Remember to use the puzzle image as a reference, rotate and experiment with the pieces, and approach the task with patience and persistence. The process of completing a round puzzle is a rewarding journey that showcases the beauty of circular images. So, grab your round puzzle, apply these tips and tricks, and immerse yourself in the joy of assembling this distinctive form of puzzling.
