The white horses of the Camargue have always intrugued me, enough to travel to Southern France in late Spring to photograph the magic of their spirits.
The White horses of the Camargue are know as one of the oldest breeds of horses in the world believed to be descended from prehistoric horses around 17,000 years ago. These horses live semi-wild in the harsh marshlands of the Rhone Delta. I enjoyed a week in the marshes and nearby ocean photographing their playful spirits.
Gardians know as the Camargue Horsemen are their protectors. They are passionate in their noble tradition of care-taking. They selectively choose the hardy, agile white horses as their mounts for riding on their farms and for herding the black Camargue bulls.
I had an opportunity to ride in the wetlands with a Camargue horse in a traditional Guardian saddle. We waded through deep marshes and rode over the uneven terrain of the werlands. The horses were surefooted and delightful to spend time with.
