THE SECRET OF COROLLA

WATCH THE TRAILER

The Secret of Corolla is the story about the Wild Colonial Spanish Horses found on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and how they have made those islands their home.

It’s a story of perseverance. Not just by the horses, but also by the people who call this very special place their home.

Through devastating hurricanes, swarms of biting flies and mosquitos, and the constant pressure from developing the islands into prime beach vacation property, these horses, and the people they share the islands with have found a way to live together in a most uncommon accord. They have created an incredibly remarkable and uniquely wondrous place.

SONG & VIDEO PREVIEW

We are very lucky to have been given a wonderful song. Castaño is a song that captures the spirit and the significance of the Corolla wild horses. We feel this song will give hope and continues to help us meet our goals.

The song, video and lyrics are available as a download for $5. Supporters will be given an opportunity to donate more. Your donation will help us continue our crucial work. Thank you for your support!

Day on the Farm

Enjoy an inside look at the Betsy Dowdy Equine Center, a 31-acre facility in Grandy where our rescued mustangs have been residing since 2014. Rescue and conservation are key components of our mission and we have recognized the need for a permanent “off-island” sanctuary.
