carolina marsh tacky

The Carolina Marsh Tacky's history dates back to the time of the Conquistadors. They descended from horses the Spanish brought with them. During colonial times, these Marsh Tackys were used for cattle drives, for transportation, for farming, and for riding. They were popular among the Native American people, especially the Chickasaw, Cherokee, Seminole, and Choctaw tribes that lived in the region. The breed was known as being able to tolerate the marshy swamps and the biting insects of the low country. It is possible that these horses are some of the original rootstock used for developing the American Quarter Horse as well as the Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse.

The Carolina Marsh Tacky or Marsh Tacky is a horse breed of South Carolina that has existed for 400 years, but is just recently having a studbook created for the breed.
