WIld horses/ponies in Virginia (south)?

so in June, my church group and I are going on a hike in the Appalachian mountains... in Virginia somewhere, I think more south in the state, and our leader says he's hiked there before and they around there are famous for their wild horses/ponies! I'm naturally very excited to take some pictures (i am also somewhat a photographer..) and i was wondering if anyone knew what kind of horses these could be. I was thinking maybe some kind of chincoteague, but I thought that those only lived on the island of assateague, except for people who buy them at the annual auction.

Anyone got some insight on this?

Thank you!!!

    I used to live in southwest Virginia...

    Yall must be going to Grayson Highlands State Park! It is absolutely beautiful! Yes, they do have wild ponies.

    For those that said there are no wild ponies it clearly says there are under the heading "NATURE, HISTORY PROGRAMS" on this website http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state_parks/gra.shtml plus just look at the pics

    You can probably find out specific info on them at the Visitor's Center.

    Here are some pics of Grayson Highlands

    In college my friends that were photo majors would go out there for pictures and loved it there!

    Have fun on your trip!

    The core jap are more commonly completely happy approximately this on the grounds that now the Asians are the hated within the nation. It's unhappy that the media consistently use South Korean killer rather of Virginia Tech Killer. If it was once a white man they would not say white killer. I'm asian and I get terrible response already and I are living in California. Give me a holiday. Asians are clearly quiet besides so now everytime I take a seat in school minding my possess trade, they consider I'm making plans a horrendous assault. It sucks, however that is the society we are living in, probably a few Mexicans will do anything loopy and the concentration can cross to them quickly.

    There are no true wild horses anymore. And there's no way that there are wild horses in Virginia anywhere but Assateague.
