Wild Horses Sable Map

There is something about horses that I just love, their movement, their grace, the power, their freedom of movement. Sable Island horses just seem the perfect fit, they are part of Canada's heritage, they have a special place in our hearts as they are a national treasure. Wild horses are majestic, beautiful and exciting to photograph. The horses on Sable Island come in many colours: Chestnut, brown, black, and Palaminos and stand anywhere between 13.2 to 15.2 hands high, appearing pony size. When we saw them in June, they were shedding out their long scruffy winter coats.They live amongst beautiful wind swept sand dune where predators are non-existent and were easy to spot amongst the dunes. The temperament of wild horses can range from extremely shy to approachable—as part of the ongoing stewardship and conservation of this remote island, and to protect the wild horses, visitors to the Island are asked to maintain a distance of 20 metres. When our Zodiac first landed on the shore of Sable Island two bachelor stallions came trotting along the beach to see what we were up to. The horses seemed curious, appeared to accept us, then ran up a step sand dune to graze on Marram grass, our presence didn’t seem to affect the wild horses on Sable Island. Parks Canada staff guided us on our hikes and we were divided into smaller groups that focused on different interests and levels of hiking the island: birding, flora and fauna, the south shore to view seals, as well as two photography groups. We hiked across sand dunes and along horse paths in the vegetated areas. We avoided walking on steep dune slopes to prevent erosion. We hiked to Bald Dune, Fresh Water Pond and avoided trampling rare plants in wetland and nesting areas, and hiked to the South Shore another time, and had free access to the Western Spit of the Island for a “free walk” with horses grazing and walking around us.

After my trip to Sable Island and experiencing it firsthand, I am an advocate for the ongoing stewardship and conservation of this remote island. As much as my photography enriches my life I hope that sharing my collections can enrich the lives of others too. I am thrilled to be able to share my Sable Island collection with you!
