    For the well-being of the horses, there are a few important things to keep in mind:

    (1) Don’t Feed the Horses
    Don’t forget that these horses are wild animals. They may look cute but they can be very dangerous. They kick, bite and can cause serious harm. Feeding them may seem harmless but because they are aggressive you can easily get hurt. It is best to keep your distance and admire from afar.

    (2) Stay at least 40 feet away from the horses at all time.
    You can actually be fined for being too close. So definitely keep your distance.

    (3) Don’t leave food unattended or out in the open.
    It is easy enough to be distracted by the beauty of the island but if you leave food out in the open you are guaranteed to get a visit from a few friends. One year during summer camp, there was a scout who left an open bag of Doritos in his tent. The horses ate a hole through the rain fly AND the tent trying to get to the Doritos.

    This would be a good time to give you a quickie lesson in horse anatomy. Here’s the handout….
