94th Annual Pony Swim

(Chincoteague)- The 94th annual Chincoteague Pony Swim brought tens of thousands of people to the Eastern Shore yesterday to watch the wild ponies swim across the Assateague Channel and come ashore on the east side of Chincoteague Island. The famed Saltwater Cowboys herded an army of approximately 110 wild adult ponies. Following the swim, the ponies paraded down Main Street to the carnival grounds where they were auctioned off.
