Outer Banks Horses

Ah, the horse – one of the most romanticized of creatures. They whinny, they gallop, they toss their manes and thunder through the surf. Who wouldn’t want to see one of these majestic beings in the wild and thriving in their natural habitats? Well, thanks to the wide offerings of wild horse tours and to the conservation and tour efforts of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, you just might see the famous Corolla wild horses. The tour guides know the Outer Banks wild horses’ favorite spots on the beach and can take you to where you have the best chance of seeing them trot, eat and play. As you will learn on the tour, approaching the wild horses is prohibited for both your safety and theirs. If you happen to see a horse when you’re not on a tour (ie. one turns up in the yard of your rental house one morning), do not approach it. The horses want to enjoy their Outer Banks experience just as much as you do. You can also visit the popular pony pen on Ocracoke Island to learn about the Outer Banks wild horses and their history. So giddy up, the Outer Banks wild horses are waiting!
