A pair of marsh tackies take off at the start of their heat during the annual Marsh Tacky Run in March 2012 on Coligny Beach on Hilton Head Island. A large crowd was on hand to watch the races, which are part of the island's Gullah Celebration. A dispute with native islanders over the lineage of some horses apparently has convinced the race organizers not to conduct the event in 2013.
