Corolla Wild Horse Fund

Join us on Saturday, October 14, for a fall open house at the farm! Meet the rescued Corolla horses currently in our care. Get up close, hear their stories, learn their history, and talk with the staff responsible for their care and managing the wild horses. At 11 a.m., a special screening of the award-winning documentary ‚ÄúThe Secret of Corolla‚ÄĚ will be held, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and CWHF staff.

Meet local ceramicist Michael Middleton, known for his use of Outer Banks regional clay and Corolla mustang hair in his unique creations. Listen to live music from singer-songwriter Janet Martin. Enjoy artisans and crafters; paint a mustang for the kids, and talk to Jeff Hampton, the author of the new book Corolla’s Wild Horses.
There is a suggested donation of $10 per car at the gate.

CWHF shirts, hats, and other gifts will be available for purchase ‚Äď the holidays are right around the corner! You can also sponsor any of the rescue horses. Sponsorship includes a photo and certificate and quarterly updates on your sponsored horse.
