Collection: Assateague Island Horses

Why foster a horse? Your symbolic foster is an ideal way to support the horses living wild and free among the Maryland herd on Assateague Island National Seashore. By fostering a horse, you are directly involved in preserving one of America’s most beloved wildlife treasures and their survival in one of our most fragile natural resources.  There is much to discover about the horses of the Maryland herd.  Scroll to the bottom of this website for links to learn more about the Assateague Horses.  

AIA would like to thank the photographers who have so graciously allowed us to use their beautiful photographs for the Foster Horse Program and our Assateague Island Horse ID app.
