Chincoteague ponies have made this romantic island town famous all over the world. Made famous by Marguerite Henry's bestselling book "Misty of Chincoteague", they make their home on the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, which is the Virginia side of nearby Assateague Island. The ponies are the property of the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company whose famous "saltwater cowboys" round up the horses annually during the Pony Penning on the last Wednesday and Thursday of July. This "pony swim" is the highlight of the summer season.
