The World's Most Endangered Horse

There are only five Abaco Horses left in the world, on the island of Abaco in the Bahamas. They are fighting for their lives as inappropriate human intervention and a drastic change in habitat have taken a severe toll. The struggling remnants of a once mighty herd of 200 are facing extinction for the second time in their recently turbulent history.

In 2002, the horses were as designated a new strain of the critically endangered Spanish Barb breed. Recent research shows that the horses are more accurately described as Spanish Colonials, so they have become the Abaco Spanish Colonials.

This site contains a history of the horses, goals for the future, a newsletter and information on how you can help. For years of reports on the horses, click on our newsletter, HOOFBEATS.
