David Rayner Photography | Quantock Hills Horses

QUANTOCK HILLS HORSES
The Quantock Hills was England’s first designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The history of the hills goes back hundreds of thousands of years. Various animals roamed these hills and today’s wild horses are believed to be descended from the animals of times past (about 3,000 BC) that inhabited the woodlands. Indeed, they are thought quite similar to those of the Iron Age (i.e. some 2,000 years ago).
The photographs in this gallery were taken on various visits to the Quantocks. The horses, while wild, usually are quite tame and approachable.
