Fable – 2010 Pinto Chincoteague Pony
Fabled Island, better known as Fable, is the most amazing 13.2hh show pony. He is a stand-out eventing pony. He is a good mover and, with his handsome looks, he is always a favorite with the dressage judges. He is a clean jumper and has competed in horse trials in California, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. He has eight 1st place Beginner Novice finishes including 2018 Area VI Championships at Woodside International Horse Trials.
Fable has a great personality and no vices. He bathes, clips, ties, and stands for the farrier. Fable is safe, easygoing, and a great confidence builder. While he is a proven event pony, he has good potential as a dressage and hunter pony too.
Fable was born on Assateague Island, Virginia. His dam is Wild Island Orchid and his sire is Witchdoctor. They are 2 of the 150 wild ponies on Assateague Island that are managed by the Chincoteague Island Fire Department. Wild ponies have inhabited Assateague Island for hundreds of years. They are most likely descended from Arabian horses that survived a shipwrecked Spanish galleon in 1750. Each July, thousands of spectators watch the Fire Department’s roundup of the ponies as they swim a channel at low tide from Assateague Island to Chincoteague Island. The Fire Department then holds an auction of most of the foals. Fable was purchased at this auction in July 2010.
