The Wild Horses of the Carolina Coast
Photo Workshops

May 25 - 31, 2013: North Carolina

This is truly a one of a kind opportunity to photograph wild horses like you have never seen them before. Prior to the horses return to the arid West, they were swimming ashore onto the barrier islands of the East Coast. Today, only a few small populations of these island horses still remain in the wild and Jared Lloyd is the only person offering photography workshops and safaris to these remote islands. These are a breed of horses shaped by wind and water, tides and storms, hurricanes and the very worst of Poseidon's wrath. Thought to be the oldest known population of wild horses in the United States, the horses that eek out a living along the desolate wind swept barrier islands of North Carolina's fabled coast offer photographers a chance to see and photograph equines in a backdrop unlike anywhere else in the US.
