See the Wild Horses
Descendants of the original colonial Spanish Mustangs, the Corolla Wild Horses have 7,500 pristine acres to roam on the “four wheel drive only” beaches North of Corolla and you can now just sit back comfortably to witness their majesty. The Corolla Wild Horses have graced our beloved shores since the first Europeans landed in the 1500′s. Arriving with the initial Spanish explorations in an area believed to be near present day Sandbridge, VA, they were "pushed off the boat" and then subsequently abandoned. Running into strong resistance from local natives, the explorers were forced to leave the barrier island in hasty retreat, leaving their livestock and horses behind. You can just imagine how hard it would have been to get these animals back onto their boat with arrows whizzing by their heads!
