FRANCIS MARION RIDE

SOUTH CAROLINA MARSH TACKY FRANCIS MARION

Today we met with a large group to trail ride through Francis Marion National Forest. Francis Marion was known by the British as the Swamp Fox, he actually rode Marsh Tackies here and defeated their Calvary during the American Revolution. It was a part of an expedition led by Tom Mullikin and the South Carolina 7 to travel the entire Palmetto Trail with the purpose of bringing attention to the seven natural wonders of the Palmetto State and creating a dialogue about conservancy and actionable steps towards conservation. It was great riding with everyone. Thanks to Shannon and Ashley of Hawkins Heritage Farm for providing the accommodations so I could participate!
