Feral Horse Facts
Commonly called “Wild Horses.” They are not however wild, rather feral. Their ancestors were domesticated horses. The Conquistadors reintroduced horses to North America in the 15th century. Some horses escaped creating feral horse herds. Many feral horses are also related to Calvary Horses from the U.S. Army. The difference between wild and feral is primarily vernacular as modern feral horses are very much wild, especially in the western U.S. To see them in the wild, head to Nevada which has the largest population of feral horses, or to Idaho or Oregon. If you live in the east, there are select areas where they are viewable, for example, Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia.
