North Carolina and Banker Horses

With approximately 256,000 horses, North Carolina is the 8th most horse-populated state in the United States. It is famous for beautiful horse ranches of all sizes, and horse lovers who love to trail ride, compete, and show their horses.

North Carolina is also home to a unique breed of horse called the Banker horse. Small in stature but big in hardiness and the ability to survive, Bankers have called North Carolina home since (probably) the early 1500s - before North Carolina was even North Carolina.

The wild Banker horses (which are actually more correctly referred to as feral since they descend from domesticated ancestors) roam an area of North Carolina known as the Outer Banks. The Outer Banks is a thin strip of islands approximately 200 miles long just East of the North Carolina mainland. Banker horses are likely to have originated their population in the Outer Banks in the early 1500s in at least a couple of different but similar ways: 1) They arrived with Spanish explorers that came ashore in the Outer Banks; or 2) They are survivors of Spanish ships that wrecked in the treacherous waters nearby.

Either way, the Banker horses of North Carolina have adapted to survive in the marshy grasslands of the Outer Banks. While technically these horses are not for sale, as part of herd management they are sometimes offered for adoption.
