Our feature stories this month includes the magical story of the Chincoteague Ponies and the traditional Pony Swim and Auction. Sport and Trail’s official photographer, Leesa Teague, experienced the event first hand and shares the story in beautiful photography and journalism. Our featured non-profit this month relates the wonderful story of a rescue who is all about those longears. T&D Donkey Rescue, Inc., located in Missouri, provides a safe haven to donkeys, mules and the occasional horse. So much more inside the September issue!
