Wild Horses, Assateague Island, Maryland

Reminds me of Assateague island, an island off of Maryland and Virginia, where wild horses run free. We camped with them on the beach- it was amazing!

Wild Horses of Assateague Island The wild horses of Assateague Island National Seashore, located off the coast of Maryland and Virginia, are descendants of domesticated animals brought to the island more than 300 years ago.

The northern two-thirds of the island is in Maryland while the southern third is in Virginia.

The Annual Pony Swim (Chincoteague, Virginia Assateague Island, Maryland)

Chincoteague Island: Wild Horses. This is actually Assateague Island which is the outer barrier island. Since the last twenty years the ponies don't come over on to Chincoteague except during the annual "Penning". Years ago it was a shocker to go out at 2 am to the outhouse and see the red eyes in the fog. I have found a dozen at times in her Mom's back yard. They are the descendants of those who swam to shore when Spanish Galleons wrecked in the Atlantic just off the Islands.
