Hi, my name is Nick and I'm a Chincoteague Pony.
I was born on May 25, 1994 and live on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, USA. I moved up here on August 8, 1994 after I was purchased at the " Pony Roundup," on July 27, 1994, which is held ever year by the Chincoteague Fire Department, in the state of Virginia. My mother, "Shore Thing," and my father, "Circuit Breaker," still live on the island. This roundup is held every last Wednesday and Thursday that are together in July. All the horses are rounded up and then they swim across the channel between the island and mainland. I didn't get to swim because I was too small, so I was taken over by boat. Only selected ponies are auctioned off and the rest go back to the island for breeding. The money raised by this auction is used to help support the Chincoteague Fire Department.

The Chincoteague Pony Drill Team, the only one of its kind in the world, was invited to perform at Equitana USA, in Louisville, Kentucky, in June of 1998. Click Here to get the full story.

If you would like to learn more about my breed see my Chincoteague Page. The National Chincoteague Pony Association also has a very informative page.

A new web page called the "Chincoteague Pony Page, Chincoteague Virginia"   has recently been added to the web.  This is a very worthwhile page to visit. You'll get a lot of information about the Chincoteague Pony as well as information all about Chincoteague, Virginia. And if you're interested in attending a pony swim, this page can refer you to all kinds of lodging.



Gareth Stevens Publishing, a well known publisher of children's books,
has released a new series of books about horses and ponies. One of the
books is all about the Chincoteague Ponies in which you will find Nick's
picture in it with  Don (owner), and Angela giving Nick a big hug. Check
your local school or local libraries for these books.
