Message from Amanda Geci

The Chincoteague Pony Pedigree Database is the fulfillment of a longtime dream of mine to have a community pedigree database for Chincoteague Ponies only. The breed has needed a central database of this kind. Because of the breed's history and feral origins much of this information is scattered and hard to find. Most all other breeds have a database of some kind to collect and share this type of information and I wished for Chincoteagues to have one as well.

The goal of the CPPD is to collect and preserve as many Chincoteague Pony pedigrees as possible. The hope is to one day be able to offer a picture of the breed past, present, and future through the collected data. I also hope to be able to utilize the CPPD to connect Chincoteague Ponies with identities or parentage that had been lost. The information in the CPPD is here to be shared with everyone interested in the Chincoteague Pony and to preserve it for the generations to come.
