Family Workshop - Wild Ponies
In honor of Pony Penning, our family workshop will be pony themed. Pony Penning is a historic event held on Chincoteague Island when the wild ponies of Assateague are rounded up and swam to shore and then auctioned off. In this workshop you will learn all about the history of the wild ponies, from how they were once on Wallops Island to the traditions of the annual pony swim. A craft will follow the workshop. Approximately 1 hour.
