Often found foraging in the pine forests, the Abaco Barbs are a rare and endangered breed of wild horses living on the island of Great Abaco in the Bahamas.

The Abaco Barbs were originally bred from Barbary horses native to the North Coast of Africa and later crossed with Spanish breeds before arriving in the Caribbean. They’re known for having great speed, stamina, intelligence and the ability to survive under extreme conditions.
