    See the In my opinion, this is the real reason everyone goes to Chincoteague, the wild ponies.  They are simply beautiful in their environment and are truly a sight to see.  It’s a short ride from anywhere on the island to get to Assateague Island National Seashore where you can experience these fine animals.

    The ponies are “owned” by the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Department and they give them healthcare and food when needed.  They are allowed to live on Assateague Island by a special permit from the US Fish & Wildlife Service.

    During July, the “saltwater” cowboys (who are Chincoteague volunteer fire company) round up the ponies for the annual Chincoteague pony swim and auction.  This event began in 1925 after the forming of the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Department, to raise money for firefighting equipment.  This was the outcome of two damaging fires that destroyed many acres on the opposite sides of the island.

    During this event, you can see the ponies swim over the Assateague Channel to Chincoteague.  There is a parade of about 100 ponies, in the heart of town, making their way to the carnival grounds where they are rested until the auction the following morning(Friday) at 8 am.  This happens the last Wednesday before the last Thursday of July every year.  The unsold ponies are then returned to Assateague Island on Friday.  All monies from this event go to the fire department to supply firefighting services to the town.

    This event draws about 40,000 spectators from around the world each year.
