For 500 years, the wild horses of the Corolla have survived on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. These majestic Mustangs proudly wander the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean, and graze in a nearby beach dune.
The Corolla Wild Horse Fund was formed in 1989 by a group of concerned citizens to heighten awareness of the presence of wild horses in the area. As the Outer Banks became more and more developed, twenty horses were killed or injured by vehicles on Highway 12. Operating under the Outer Banks Conservationists, Inc., the Corolla Wild Horse Fund worked to have 7,544 acres of the northern-most beaches defined as a horse sanctuary.
