Corolla Wild Horse Museum

520 Old Stoney Road, Suite B, Corolla
(252) 453-8002

Corolla Wild Horse Fund's offices, museum store and education center are now located at 520B Old Stoney Road in the Ocean Club Centre, the same complex as Corolla’s Visitors Center and the ABC Store. This is where the Corolla Wild Horse Fund shares the fascinating history and legacy of the Banker strain of Colonial Spanish Mustangs. Descendants of Spanish Mustangs were brought to the Outer Banks nearly 500 years ago, and today their hardy, majestic breed is highly endangered. The whole family can learn more about the horses in this museum from the knowledgeable staff, photography and historical information. Donations are accepted and benefit Corolla Wild Horse Fund, managers of the wild herd. All purchases from the Corolla Wild Horse Museum store also benefit the fund and the wild horses.

Open all year, the Corolla Wild Horse Fund also offers special programming, especially in the summer. Activities include Meet a Mustang where visitors can see and pet a tamed and gentled mustang. Starting in the summer of 2019, the fund will hold a new program called Member Mornings at the Farm. One day each week, their rehabilitation facility, at the Betsy Dowdy Equine Center in Jarvisburg, will be open for visitors to see the rescued mustangs under the fund's and their work with them. It's an opportunity to get an inside look at things and perhaps meet a horse you've heard much about. They plan to hold their Meet a Mustang events at various locations and times throughout the summer. For more information and a listing of calendar events, please see their website.
