banker horse

Nobody quite knows the exact origin of the Banker Horse, but they probably are of some Spanish stock as it was the Spanish explorers who first visited the island in the 1520s. In the 1580s, the island was briefly colonized by the English. Both were known to have brought stock over, though we are uncertain whether the stock escaped, were released or saved from shipwreck. Whatever the case, by the 1700, the horses were well documented on the Outer Banks, and because it is a relatively isolated island, the horses have remained pure.

The Banker Horse is a horse which has existed on the island of North Carolina's Outer Banks for centuries. This feral horse survives by eating the marsh grass and by scratching through sand for water seepage. Due to environmental problems and management agencies, the numbers of Bankers have declined over the last years and very few are left.
