Corolla Wild Horse Tours Cost

Horse Laying on Beach

So, you’ve decided to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina! Great idea.

Now you’re wanting to plan an adventure to go see the horses that roam freely on the northern Currituck County beaches. You’re going to have so much fun.

Unless you have your own 4×4 vehicle and can safely navigate through the sand in your SUV or truck, you’ll need to reserve a Corolla wild horse tour with one of the handfuls of companies that offer this sought-after service.

Before you book your adventure with a company, you’re probably wondering what the cost for your Corolla wild horse tour is going to be. Well, you’ve found the right blog post!

The cost for a Corolla wild horse tour will be about $50 for adults and $20 for children (12 and under).

As stated above, there are quite a few companies that offer wild horse tours…. so how do you decide which one to choose?

We recommend checking the availability with the Corolla Wild Horse Tours first!

If that doesn't pan out due to availability, another good option is the Corolla Wild Horse Fund. But why, you ask?

Well, the mission statement of the Corolla Wild Horse Fund is: “to protect, conserve, and responsibly manage the herd of wild Colonial Spanish Mustangs roaming freely on the northernmost Currituck Outer Banks, and to promote the continued preservation of this land as a permanent sanctuary for horses designated as the State Horse and defined as a cultural treasure by the state of North Carolina.”

Incorporated as a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit charity in 2001, the money you spend on your Corolla wild horse tour with this nonprofit goes right back into the care and conservation of the horses. Every other wild horse tour provider is a for-profit organization.

We are by no means against capitalism, we just believe that if you have the choice, a tour with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund is the best option for you and your group of family and friends.

There are three different tours available with the Corolla Wild Horse Fund, including the Mustang Champion (2 hour trip with specialist and other patrons), Mustang Defender (a private trip for up to 2 people), and the Charter Membership (a private trip for up to 4 people).

If there aren’t any tours available during your time of choice, you should be able to find at least one open time slot with one of the many other Corolla wild horse tour providers on the Outer Banks.

We hope you enjoy your adventure and please, remember to never, ever touch the horses, it's illegal! Also, be sure to bring a camera to capture all the action.
