Visit with a Banker Pony | Weekly on Tuesday, Thursday from 9 to 11 AM
Island Farm, 1140 N. US Hwy 64, Manteo
Admission: Adults are $8 per person, and children 3 and under are free.
Island Farm is lucky enough to have two Corolla wild horses living on-site. Join us every Tuesday and Thursday in August (from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m.) to learn more about these incredible “banker ponies”, and how they fit into early life on the Outer Banks. Rainbow and Grace will be at the hitching post twice per week, ready to visit with anyone who will scratch their noses. Subject to change due to weather and demeanor of horse(s).
About Island Farm: On any given day at Island Farm, our staff is telling the real story of the hardscrabble life of Roanoke Islanders who first settled here – after the Lost Colony, and before the Civil War and the Wright Brothers first flight. When we’re open, you’ll find live demonstrations including everything from traditional agricultural, blacksmithing, food preparation, hearth cooking, weaving and spinning wool, feeding the animals, and so much more! History is alive here, and ready for you – don’t miss it! Visit their website to learn more and plan your visit.
