One of the oldest living horse breeds in the world may be found in the dramatically gorgeous Camargue, an area in southern France that has long been known for its wild white horses.
The Camargue horse has long-standing historical links to the local community, where families have worked with the type for centuries. It is believed that the breed has lived in the Camargue marshes and wetlands for thousands of years.
With their characteristic grey colour and love of salt water, the white horses of Camargue offer a wildlife watching experience second to none.
Not only are these horses strong and able to withstand extreme elements, they are also even tempered and although they are technically wild, their living among humans for thousands of years have made them friendly and curious of visitors and wildlife watchers.
Often called the Horse of the Sea, the white horses of Camargue attract not only curious tourists but professional photographers from around the world who come to capture them frolicking in the water during sunrise and sunsets.
Have you been lucky enough to witness these magnificent horses in their natural element? I would LOVE to hear about your experience!
