The Annual Marsh Tacky Beach Races is a one-day event that developed in 2009 to raise funds and awareness for the Marsh Tacky horse and it’s current status, history, heritage, and importance to the Lowcountry. Designated the South Carolina State Heritage Horse in 2010, the endangered Marsh Tacky is protected in part by the non-profit Carolina Marsh Tacky Association. Major in-kind donations and sponsorships that made this year’s event possible are by Melrose on the Beach, J&W Corporation, Calibogue Cruises, Oceanfront Residence Club, Accurate Lithography, and Daufuskie Properties Realty, and other fine sponsors and vendors. Thanks for your support!
