A nice view of the pony pen and part of the island. The ponies are cute. Worth a 15 minute stop to view. Kids should love it. Directly across roadway is beach access and offers some nice dunes.

Viewing the Ocracoke ponies was amazing, but it is sad to think they have to be kept corralled to prevent their deaths on the road. These are the original locals, and deserve to be treated such. Beautiful animals, and their carekeepers seem to genuinely care for the. Beautiful to see.

Don't get your hopes up to see some "wild ponies" because they don't exist!!! We were SUPER disappointed to just see three ponies in a wooden pen smaller than my back yard! Upon getting home from our trip we read that the REAL wild horses are found in Corolla. SO sad that we missed them.

It is good that the horses are penned because they are apt to be hit by the many, many cars that zoom down the road to get to Ocracoke. It is a nice little spot of Outer Banks history.

My family enjoyed stopping by and seeing the Ocracoke ponies this past March. The ponies are beautiful and their habitat well taken care of. If you love horses, you have to stop by here for a visit!
