Marsh Tacky Stables

Just past our restaurant and cottages you can see something few ever do these days, but was once a common sight in the Lowcountry. Here at our stables you can get up close to several Marsh Tacky horses including the first one born on the island in over 3 decades this past year! The Marsh Tacky is a unique breed of Colonial Spanish Horse found only in South Carolina and is one of the most endangered horse breeds in the world. Decades ago thousands of them roamed freely across the South Carolina Sea Islands, but sadly their numbers have neared extinction as vehicles and development took the place of horsepower. Today, there are around 400 Marsh Tackies left, and we’re dedicated to carrying on this unique Lowcountry heritage.
