Our kids enjoyed this but it was just so so in my opinion. The horse ride is $10 for a few laps around an indoor ring. Young staff leading horse were very polite. Man working the Counter where we purchased ticket could not have been less enthusiastic. No explanation of outside “petting zoo”( miniature pony, goats and donkeys) , memorabilia around rink or even a friendly welcome. Definitely not a must do .

The Pony Centre is improving, and it’s worth a visit.

The Pony Centre must be under new management again since our last visit there two years ago. The new staff was much more friendly than in 2019, and our little boys were able to ride a pony there. They also had some goats and donkeys to pet behind the building. It’s still not as good as it was in the years prior to 2019, but I could tell they are really trying to improve. They could stand to have more inventory in their gift shop, and they still don’t have a pony show (that I know of). I hope they bring it back someday. It was very special.

There are some lovely horses and ponies to visit. We enjoyed just hanging out with the animals. They are so friendly. They come right to you.

Not worth it

Wasn’t worth the 2min drive to get there. Staff was not helpful or friendly. There were some horses but not any that were reminiscent of the wild ones seen throughout the island. Gift shop was lack luster and consisted mainly of cheap tacky trinkets.

Great Experience

Our family of 5 visited the pony center and enjoyed our visit. The staff was very friendly. I suggest going in the barn and getting an up close experience with the ponies. We were able to go to an awesome pony show on Friday night and it was amazing!!

Awesome experience
Aug 2020 • Family
So excited the pony centre is now under new management and more like the original pony centre. There are pony rides, lessons, a petting zoo, and shows. The gift shop is stocked with Breyers and schleich and many other fun things for kids, Chincoteague souvenirs, and just about something for everyone. I hope those that were disappointed over the last two summers will come and see it back and running like it was intended. Also it’s open 7 days a week and will be open in the fall as well.

Stopped to Enjoy the Ponies and Look for Souvenirs
Sep 2019
The souvenir options were great, there were a lot of items for the ponies and Chincoteague in general. In the back they had a rare-breed donkey and a pony that we could see and pet, as well as two ponies out front. The lady at the counter and another lady in the back area both had tons of information about the island, ponies, and the donkey. They seemed very passionate about the ponies and donkey. I really appreciated talking with them as we hadn't really learned the history of the island yet before coming here. It really kick-started our appreciation for the area and the ponies. We walked away with some good souvenirs and a lot of great information.
