Corolla Wild Horse Fund announces fall open house set for October 14 - OBX Today

Join the Corolla Wild Horse Fund (CWHF) on Saturday, October 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for an action-packed fall open house at the farm! Meet the rescued Corolla horses currently in their care, get a close look, 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 “The Secret of Corolla” will be held, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker and CWHF staff.

Local ceramicist Michael Middleton, known for his use of Outer Banks regional clay and Corolla mustang hair in his unique creations, will also be in attendance, as well as singer-songwriter Janet Martin offering live music.

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 – 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.
