What is the Pony Penning?
Pony Penning is an annual event held in Chincoteague, Virginia on the last consecutive Wednesday and Thursday in July.
The ponies swim across the channel during slack tide, when the water has minimal tidal movement. Once on Chincoteague Island, the Saltwater Cowboys herd the ponies to pens on the Chincoteague Carnival Grounds where some of the foals are auctioned off on Thursday.
