To Preserve and Promote the Marsh Tacky Horse of South Carolina

“We are extremely dedicated to and passionate about the breed’s survival. These horses are a part of history.”
– Jackie McFadden / Charleston Magazine / Feb 2011

Our Mission
The Carolina Marsh Tacky Association (CMTA), established in 2007, is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization
whose purpose is to preserve and promote the Marsh Tacky horse.
Once plentiful in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, Marsh Tackies are now endangered with only 360 documented Marsh Tackies in existence.
Individual owners and enthusiasts are diligently working to save the Marsh Tacky from extinction
and to preserve the history of the breed.
