The Camargue horse originated from the Southeast of France. They got their name from the area that is situated by the Rhone and Mediterranean where the area is full of land and lakes. It is this mystical area situated in Western Europe along the river that most of the Camargue horses were found. Experts believe these creatures are of no Arab relation at all. They may, however, be of relation to the breed called Solutre Horse, which is currently extinct. They are very strong creatures that can withstand the toughest of temperatures and extreme terrains. Utilized primarily by the cowboys and better referred to as their own guardians, the horses would even aide in rounding up bull and cattle. Currently, this breed is branded and the ones that are not good candidates for this are gelded. They can be found residing Arles, Monaco, Marseille, and other parts of France and Italy.
