In the Herd Book



Travel to Assateague Island and experience the Chincoteague ponies and Assateague horses as never before, in this photographic journey by award-winning and respected equine photographer Jayne M. Silberman. The 136 gallery-quality photographs show-cased here, shot during the author’s many visits over a two-year period, intimately portray the lives and habitat of the herds through the four seasons.

In the Herd takes you far beyond the aspect of herd life known best to the world, the annual Chincoteague Pony Swim. With the cooperation of the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company and the National Park Service – two groups deeply involved in the lives and future of the Assateague herds – Silberman has enjoyed unique access to areas not previously seen. In these remote and beautiful places, she was able to capture the animals in unguarded and astonishing moments.
