The Chincoteaqe Ponies: An Interview with Gale Park Frederick – From the January issue of Florida Equine Athlete

One of my favorite books is Misty of Chincoteague, the story of a lovely Chincoteague pony. The National Chincoteague Pony Association has been sharing their love of this amazing horse breed for over 42 years. A symbol of America’s horse-history, the Chincoteague ponies are best known for their “swim” that began in 1925. The Ponies are forced to swim across Assateague Channel – from Assateague Island to Chincoteague Island – to downsize the growing herd to sustain the breed. The ponies’ natural home, Assateague Island, can only support about 150 horses. The foals are auctioned to protect and support the herd. A non-profit organization, the association was founded by Gale Park Frederick. I recently caught up with Gale and asked her about her beautiful Chincoteague ponies and her love of horses.
