OPPORTUNITY TO RIDE AND COMPETE FOR FREE ON A CRITICALLY ENDANGERED CAROLINA MARSH TACKY HORSE.
If you are an experienced rider, live in Upstate South Carolina and would like to show one of our critically endangered Carolina Marsh Tacky horses, please get in touch!
Blackberry Ridge Horse Farm is seeking an experienced, motivated rider who would like to enter his or her choice of equine events with one of our critically endangered Carolina Marsh Tacky horses. We have 2 stallions, a mare and 2 geldings to choose from for a rider. The rider MUST be willing to come to our farm, 30 minutes outside of Anderson, SC, to train and practice. For the right person, we will transport the horse to mutually agreeable events and pay the entry fees. We also have other young horses available for the right trainers who would like to start a Marsh Tacky and compete in events of their choosing. Contact me, MJ Goodwin, by email at email@example.com if you are interested in this arrangement. ANY discipline is fine. We would like to see Tackies excel in Western, English, Dressage and Endurance pursuits.
This opportunity is limited to experienced riders only. These are young, green horses and not suitable for inexperienced riders. The farm is located 30 minutes outside of Anderson, SC and travel here on a regular basis is required.
