The Wild Ponies of Chincoteagua
An upbeat documentary that chronicles the island of Chincoteaque’s famous annual round-up during Pony Penning week, including its Pony Swim and Pony Auction. But it’s so much more than that. The film tells the story of three Feather Fund recipients, one of whom was saved from severe depression and self-harm by her Chincoteague pony.
