This plantation was once the home of Fort Randall, a confederate fort from 1861 to 1863. During the War of the States, the US-North Atlantic Squadron was very active in this area. The remains of a cannonball still lies in place on the Battery Hill beside Fort Randall. The open fields at the entrance to our stables were originally cleared by the 9000 confederate soldiers, as the tree line along the Intracoastal Waterway served as a barrier from coming enemy ships. The property was once home to Billy the Kid, and even Blackbeard was said to have used our island as a safe haven.
Where we ride has been named one of the "top ten horse-friendly beaches in the Southeast."

“Just to let you know, my grand-daughter and I were there for our Trail Ride on Monday at 11 am. It was AWESOME! The weather was perfect, and Dallas, our guide, was great. I love the pictures, and I bought the little camera card so I can print as many as I want. The staff you have there are great. Maybe we'll have to do it again when we visit. Thanks for a great time”

“I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful ride. I haven't been riding in years. Although it was only an hour ride, my daughter, my son, and myself enjoyed it greatly. It was my daughter's first time on a horse and was thrilled and didn't want to leave. Again thank you for the ride, we will definitely come and visit on our next trip to the beach.”

“Thank you so much for making my 68th birthday so memorable. My granddaughter took me there as a surprise. The guides were so full of personality and answered all of my million questions with enthusiasm. You can tell they love their jobs. This was my 1st time on a horse, and they made me feel very at ease getting on and riding Dolly, who was a sweet, gentle sweetheart, as were all the horses. We took the 1-hour ride on the beach. It was wonderful. Being an animal lover, the 1st thing I saw was how healthy and well cared for and loved the horses were. The stable and pastures were very clean as was the whole property(and there are acres and acres of woodland and marshes). Beautiful. What a great birthday.”
- Pam Strickland
“Last year my girlfriend and I took the trail ride, this year the beach ride. Both were an absolute blast! The personnel was so great. The stables and areas around them were well maintained. Horses are healthy, gentle, well cared for, and loved. Recommend this for anyone who wants a great time!”
