This ancient breed of horse is indigenous to the Camargue area in southern France, like the Wild West. It takes a very rustic horse to survive this territory. These “white angels” of the Camargue are born in the water, they roll and play in the water and love to run in the water.

Since the 1500s, they have been living in semi-feral conditions in the marshy land of the region with the Camargue horsemen also known as ‘guardians’ or ‘cowboys of the riviera’ tending to them.

They have earned the trust of these horses, and their lives revolve around the tradition of caring for them. They share a language with the horses, a language full of gestures…. it is a communication based upon respect and this symbiotic relationship has had a huge impact on shaping both of their identities.
