As previously mentioned, last week I spent half a day with an old dressage friend, who now works as Herd Manager for a herd of wild horses in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. She took me through the sand dunes of the wildlife preserve, showing me the various herds and pointing out “singles” (often loner bachelors) while I did my very best impersonation of safari-style wildlife photographer. Though I intend to write a more in-depth post about the experience, I want to share some of my favorite images from the day.
Many thanks to C, for taking the time to answer my questions and trek through the deep sand so I could get these shots. Happy Friday everyone!
We were in Corolla for Labor Day! Wish we could have seen the horses. This is so cool!
We were there at the same time! Too funny! Hope you enjoyed your trip 🙂
great pictures! haven’t been that far south but i love seeing the wild ponies of assateague and chincoteague
Love these photos! One of these days, I’m going to make it down to Cumberland to stalk some wild ponies, too. Sounds like a blast!
These are great! It’s been a long time since I’ve seen the ponies in NC. Enjoyed this.
What a cool job! What all does it entail?
Squee! Wild baby!
Very groovy forelock 🙂 and I love the b&w with the single horse!
Soooooo cool!! Look how fat their bellies are!!!
Love those pics!
