About Carolina Marsh Tacky HorsesAbout Carolina Marsh Tacky Horses



Carolina Marsh Tackys are working horses. They have an uncanny ability to work inside water and even deep, swampy conditions along the shoreline. They are relatively small horses (13 to 15 hands), they are ideal for carrying around children and also for riding practices as well. They are generally put to work on farmlands to herd cattle.  

Carolina Marsh Tacky history goes back hundreds of years. Coming from a Spanish breed of horses, the Carolina Marsh Tacky breed has more recently been a part of the culture in South Carolina. Spanish explorers brought theses animals over the eastern shoreline many centuries ago, as far dating as the sixteen hundreds. Even utilized during the American Revolution, and for workers on farmlands, they are very hard working creatures. They have recently been under watch for endangerment with only a few hundred of them presently existing. Associations and many studies have been conducted to enrich the future as well as preserve the past of these fine animals. The name Tacky is derived from the English word for cheap or common. Most were used as pack animals for the Native American trade routes of the Chickasaw, Creek, and Southeastern Choctaw.
