Chincoteague Pony Penning Week: The Pony Swim & The Raffle

Go with us to an event where children have longed to go to for almost a hundred years... then see how one single dollar makes a lifetime of dreams come true!

Hi friends… welcome to the Wild Side… I’m Steve Hall…

Annual outdoor events are often exciting… but when you consider the onslaught of Covid and how it first shut everything down… opportunities take on a new appreciation.

Consider the world famous Pony Swim in Chincoteague, Virginia… canceled only twice in its 97 year history… during World War II… and then again in 2020.

So getting a chance to experience it for the first time with fellow Tennesseans who have been been there several times… is something we wanted to share with you.
