Mustang Monthly's Pony Trails has become a tradition during the Ford & Mustang Roundup, with this year marking the ninth year for the cruise. Nearly 150 Mustangs and Fords jammed the parking lot at NPD's Ocala headquarters before heading on a leisurely trek west to Cedar Key, a scenic fishing village located on the Gulf of Mexico where Pony Trailers split up for shopping and lunch at the waterfront restaurants. Afterwards, many returned to NPD for a tour of the company's collection of vintage Fords and other special interest vehicles.
