Wild horses were long time the symbol of American West. Nowadays, it is believed that around 60000 of wild horses live in both North America and Canada. These are actually free- roaming descendants of domesticated horses brought in America by Spanish explorers. There are many places where these splendid animals can be watched in the wild.
Nevada is home of almost half of horses population considered to be wild in North America, many of them part of the Virginia Range herd.
They can be seen during a hiking on the trails situated east to Reno in the vicinity of watering holes. North Carolina Outer Banks was other times home for thousands of wild horses, but nowadays the developing of beach resorts in the area impacted in a negative way their existence and it is believed that they will not be longer around.
The area became Canadian National Park. It is not easy to get there but the reward is great, as here visitors can admire a unique bird life and seals together with wild horses.
