The Corolla wild horses are recognized as a significant cultural and historical resource by the state of North Carolina and were designated as the North Carolina State Horse in 2010. The herd is protected and monitored by the nonprofit Corolla Wild Horse Fund Inc. of Corolla. The fund has been working with Congressman Walter Jones and other legislators on the passage of federal legislation entitled The Corolla Wild Horses Protection Act.
To learn more about the horses or to schedule a Trip of a Lifetime to see the horses, call or visit the Wild Horse Museum Store in the historic village of Corolla. You can also visit their website at www.corollawildhorses.org. Remember, the horses are wild. It is against the law to be within 50 feet of them (five car lengths), to feed them or to bother them in any way. Please obey the Wild Horse Ordinance and help the Corolla Wild Horse Fund protect the wild horses by admiring them from a respectful distance.
