Spanish Mustangs at Corolla Dunes

Possibly the most celebrated among North Carolina’s wild horses are the Spanish mustangs of Corolla. These rugged and hardy wild horses are proven to be descendants of the Spanish mustangs brought to the New World by explorers and colonists as long ago as the early 1500’s. Admirers come to Corolla and Currituck in droves to marvel at these magnificent mustangs that run free in the eleven-mile long remote area bounded on the East by the Atlantic Ocean, on the West by Currituck Sound, and on the North and South by fences that stretch from ocean to sound.

It is interesting to see these mustangs between homes on the beach.
