If you love horses, or any animal, you need to stop and see them if you're on the island.
Ponies are real pretty

It was interesting learning about the ponies and their history on the island.

We saw several horses, which are enclosed in a huge pen and managed by the park service. The horses are fed and watered by the viewing area, and we were told there are almost always some ponies to see in the evening, which is when we went.

The Pony Pen is a good stop for anyone on their way to or from the Hatteras Island Ferry or the lifeguards beach. We saw about 8 ponies in the pen. It's a quick stop, but worth your time. A couple of signs close by will provide you with more info about the history of the ponies.

We skipped it on the way to town. That was a mistake. We rode our bikes up later in the week on a warm morning. The ride was easy but very hot with little shade and periodic bursts of traffic from the ferry.

The pen itself was just that, a pen. The horses were visible, but there was no interaction, nor were the ponies very active.

Not much to see, however, nice to know they are descendants of the wild ponies on the island. There were about 6 ponies out grazing.
