The Chincoteague Ponies have a long and famous history. Originating in Spain, where they were bred to work in the coal mines. Much research has been done on how the ponies arrived here in the United States.
Many stories have been written over the years, both fact and fictional, which has inspired intrigue and mystical imaginations. Many children have grown up reading books about "Misty of Chincoteague". They have shared these
stories with children and grandchildren of their own.
Folks travel from around the world to see these
famous ponies they have heard and read about!
The ponies were shipped over on a Spanish Galleon
in the 16th Century. Upon arriving to the
United States, they encountered a storm just off
the coast of Virginia. The ship sank and the
surviving ponies swam ashore to Assateague Island
where they roam free today.
