The Camargue horse is an ancient breed of horse indigenous to the Camargue area in southern France . For centuries, possibly thousands of years, these small horses have lived wild in the harsh environment of the Camargue marshes and wetlands of the Rhone delta . There they developed the stamina, hardiness and agility for which they are known today. The Camargue horse is the traditional mount of the gardians , the Camargue "cowboys" who herd the black Camargue bulls used in bullfighting in southern France. Camargue horses galloping through water is a popular and romantic image of the region.
