Corolla Wild Horses

Descended from the Spanish Mustangs brought to the Outer Banks by early explorers, the Corolla Wild Horses have roamed across the Currituck Outer Banks for approximately 400 years. These horses are such a significant cultural and historic resource to our area that the Spanish Mustang was designated as the official state horse of North Carolina in 2010.

These wild horses roam freely in Corolla and are most commonly found in the four-wheel-drive areas of the beach. It is illegal to intentionally come within 50 feet of the horses, so that means no petting or feeding, but they can be appreciated from a distance on one of our wild horse tours. We have several tour companies that can get you within picture-taking distance while also giving you a great history lesson about the horses and the area itself.

  • Corolla Wild Horse Museum

    Located in Historic Corolla Village, the Wild Horse Museum is operated by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. The museum is free and open to the public year-round, and it houses displays and exhibits to educate visitors about the wild Spanish Mustang herd that roams the northern beaches of the Currituck Outer Banks.

    During the summer, the museum sponsors children’s activities, including live visits and rides with tamed mustangs.
