A Camargue Horse peers over the long grass of the Plaine de la Camargue in the Parc Naturel Regional de Camargue in the Bouches du Rhone region of the Provence in France - its mainly gray and white coat standing out vividly against the green of the grass. Camargue Horses are known as such because they are only found in the Camargue region of France; they are a very old breed of horse and have been roaming this area of the earth of hundreds of years.

These horses are quite small in size, but that does not detract from their hardiness, and agility, and their tough nature. They are known for this today and are celebrated for these reasons. They used to be used to herd the Camargue Bulls that were used for bullfighting in southern France and they were ridden by the Camargue cowboys.

This region of France is quite varied and can be a tough environment to navigate. It consists of marshes, wetlands, and lagoons; it is a river delta, about 300 square miles in size. The protected area of the Parc Naturel Regional de Camargue is a nature conservation and that allows these horses, among some other animals to be safe and to live in their natural habitat.
