Marsh Tacky Races

On February 22nd, ALBC staff member, Jeannette Beranger traveled down to Hilton Head Island, SC, to be the emcee for the Marsh Tacky races that occured on Mitchelsville Beach. The races, which had not occured in more than 50 years, were a true success and testament for the breed. With fewer than 200 of these horses remaining, it's critical that conservation efforts are made.
