Ridgeland ~ History of the Lowcountry Marsh Tacky at Morris Heritage Center

Event Details

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 Tackys, which are now endangered with only 300 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 and Daniel Lowther from the Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society bring the history of these astounding creatures.
Guests will have the opportunity to view the horses up close with a private showing of the breed.
Space is limited, event sells out quickly. Pre-register now! The non-profit Heritage Center, which preserves the Lowcountry’s history and culture through projects, events, and exhibitions, requests a $10 admission fee for this program.
