Wild Horses of Corolla The Carolinas Equestrian 01A Corolla wild horse grazing by the side of one of the many unpaved, sand roads in this area of the Outer Banks, showing off his Colonial Spanish Wild Mustang features of a shorter back with one less vertebrae than other breeds of horses.Windswept, sandy beaches, multi-story beach houses, beach towns with quirky names like Nags Head, and laid-back beach vibes are what people usually think of when they think of the Outer Banks of North Carolina.  An image of Wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs is not one usually associated with the Outer Banks.  Most picture herds of mustangs galloping across wide open land out west, not horses grazing on marsh grass by the Currituck Sound.

Yet in the northern part of the Outer Banks, a small herd of around 75-95 Corolla Wild Horses, who are classified as Wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs, still roam free.
