Chincoteague Ponies

If you are really interested in learning more about the Chincoteague ponies, their habitat, the pony penning event, or preserving ecology, there is no substitute for visiting Chincoteague in July during the annual event or even at another time of the year. Should you want written information, there are many books and web sites that can provide you with information on the area and the ponies. In any case, we highly recommend that you at least pick up a copy of Marguerite Henry's Misty of Chincoteague--it is a must read story for children and adults alike.
