Join us on March 6 at 3:00pm to take a special look at the Lowcountry’s very own Marsh Tacky horses. Learn about the once plentiful Marsh Tackies, which are now endangered with only around 400 documented in existence.

Individual owners and enthusiasts are diligently working to save the Marsh Tacky and to preserve the history of the breed. Erica Marie Veit from Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society and Daniel Lowther from Carolina Marsh Tacky Association bring the history of these astounding creatures alive.

Guests will have the opportunity to view the horses up close with a private showing of the breed.
