Camargue horses are the oldest living breed of horses in all the world. With their characteristic grey color and love of salt water, photographing these wild horses in Southern France will be an experience I will never forget .  Not only are these horses strong and able to withstand extreme elements, they are even tempered. The Camargue wild horses are indigenous to the Wetlands of Camargue along the French Southern Coast. The wetlands are located in a marshy natural reserve formed by a fork in the Rhone River at the City of Arles, France where the Rhone and Le Petit Rhone split and empty into the Mediterranean Sea. The area is a mostly protected area divided into the Parc Naturel Regional de Camargue and the Reserve Naturelle de Camargue.
