The herd of Corolla, NC, wild horses sets the town apart from other Outer Banks destinations. Their origins here are attributed to the Colonial Spanish Mustangs that initially came to the Outer Banks 500 years ago. In the centuries they’ve lived on these islands, the herd has evolved into a species that relies on the Outer Banks’ distinctive environment. The Corolla, NC, wild horses are managed by the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, which preserves, studies and administers care and rehabilitation to the horses. They also run programs and activities that educate the public about these horses’ history and proper ways to coexist with the herd today. See the horses in their natural habitat with a wild horse tour – by far the most popular thing to do in Corolla, NC. During this Outer Banks adventure, knowledgeable guides lead safari-style vehicles into the off-road area north of N.C. Highway 12. In this experience tour-goers see the horses grazing in the marsh, galloping in the surf and playing on the beach.
