Sable Island in the Atlantic off the coast of Nova Scotia has a thriving population of wild horses. The Sable Island horses are among the few wild horse populations that are entirely unmanaged: they are not subject to any kind of human interference. Since 1961, the Sable Island horses have had legal protection under the Sable Island Regulations of the Canada Shipping Act.
