Neptune, God of the Sea, was traveling in his chariot drawn by 9 white horses, in front of the mouth of the Rhone, when he met a farmer who was having trouble with a black bull:

"Here's my best horse; if you know how to make a friend of him, he will be an irreplaceable ally against the black bull.But remember, he comes from the Sea and he was led by a god: when he wants, let him free to come and deeply breathe his marine and divine origins"

This is the legend about the horses of the Camargue.

Bred by the gypsies, it's possible to meet them at sunset on the beaches of Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
