First off, as soon as you park, there are a few ponies out front more than willing to be loved on. Once you get in, it's one of the nicest gift shops on the island for horse stuff. Picked up books our first night (nothing like seeing your kids reading on vacation) The pony show was wonderful. It wasn't expensive... More

Even though my granddaughters are teens, they enjoyed the Pony Centre. Too bad there is no riding available for them, but great for little ones.

You can even send your kid to a half-day pony camp for a day or a whole week. The staff and young riders here have a genuine love of... More

Basically a store that sells pony-related merchandise. It mostly seems set up for little girls 10 years and younger. There are pens out in front and they have a few Chincoteague ponies in there, so you can actually see them up close and get some good photos. The ancestors of Misty of Chincoteague are here and in the back pony... More

This place is a joke. They advertise a museum and all these great things and it all costs money to see. They do have a large gift shop and some horses out front but beyond that nothing interesting unless you open your wallet.

She did the pony camp program where she got to groom the ponies, painted a horse shoe, and rode one of Misty's descendants. They also have pony rides. The... More
