Les chevaux de l'île Shackleford sont une population équine retournée à l'état sauvage (phénomène du marronage) sur les îles du même nom.


Origines et histoire

Ces chevaux sont les descendants de montures des colons qui furent abandonnées sur place. A l'instar des mustangs, il existe un programme d'adoption pour ces chevaux.


Comme tous les chevaux retournés à l'état sauvage, sa morphologie a évolué : La taille s'est réduite, le garrot est plat, les cuisses peu remplies et le modèle étroit.
