GEORGETOWN, S.C. (WCIV)-- Georgetown County Council is considering reducing the amount of time that horses can be ridden on beaches.
The county currently allows horseback riding on the beaches for six months from September to March. A proposal offered Tuesday would reduce that to only four months: mid November through Mid-March.
The County Parks and Recreation Department asked council last year to ban horses on the beach completely because of complaints about the animals' waste.
A final vote could come at a Sept. 27th meeting.
