Assateague State Park – Horses
Horses are free to roam on Assateague Island. This horse was grazing around camping loop A in the Assateague State Campground.
When we were walking the trail, there were four horses in this area.
The Island effectively belongs to the horses. Campers, Rangers etc, are guests!
The birds and this horse seem to be buds. In fact for a while there were a couple of birds horseback riding. No saddle was necessary!
This horse is grazing along side the campground walking trail.
There are a number of walking trails on the Assateague Island. There is plenty of wildlife. Check out the National Park Service for more information.
We spent our time in the Maryland portion of the Island. The Island extends South into Virginia.
