Assateague Island Pony HeadOcean City, Maryland

Assateague Wild Horses

Too much salt in your hair? Got sand in your shoes? Take a break from the surf, sun and sand to go see the ponies at the Assateague Island National Seashore.

Assateague Island is only a few minutes drive from the southern end of Ocean City and is truly a great place to visit. The two closest areas of the barrier island are managed by two separate government agencies. They are well cared for, have modern facilities and provide educational/informative visitors' centers.

If you can't make it there (right now), visit Assateague Pony to see photographs of the wild horses of Assateague Island and learn more about them.

Adopt a Pony! If you've ever thought about adopting a pony (yes, it is a fund raiser for the Assateague Island Alliance) you might be interested in the Assateague Foster Horse Program.
