Bring on the Dancing Horses

Large arrow left

Descended from horses brought over in the 16th century by Spanish conquistadors, hundreds of wild horses rule the little island of Vieques.

The horses, an attraction in their own right, dot the landscape wherever you go. With every encounter, I couldn't help but slow down and admire their beauty. They are naturally intelligent and curious, so don't be surprised if they approach you or your vehicle looking for little treats.

For a guaranteed encounter, look no further than Sun Bay—where I snapped this picture. Here, they graze, take frequent sand baths, and (if you're lucky) cool their hooves in the blue waters of the Caribbean.
