About Us
In 1968, William S. Morris III of Augusta, Ga., acquired Creek Plantation, a tract of land near Martin, S.C., fronting on the Savannah River and comprising 2526 acres of timberlands and open fields used for agriculture. The plantation offered Billy Morris the opportunity to pursue a lifelong interest in horses and to begin breeding quarter horses.

In the mid-1970s, Billy Morris became interested in the sport of cutting, and was instrumental in founding the Augusta Futurity. Morris has maintained a consistent interest in cutting horses, and Creek Plantation has been fortunate to have had the services and help of outstanding trainers, among them Larry Reeder, Bill Riddle, David Stewart and Phil Rapp. Creek’s breeding program has produced numerous NCHA winners, including Splash of Gin, Wheeling Peppy, Miss Smooth Splash, Judge Tanquery, Shes Pretty Smooth, Gincoe and others.

Morris’ interest in animals isn’t limited to horses. He began building a commercial cattle operation, which consists of some 2200 commercial brood cows. In addition, Creek Plantation is home to a herd of registered Texas longhorns.

Over the years, Creek Plantation has been expanded with the acquisition of additional land, so that today it consists of nearly 14,000 acres and encompasses three commercial enterprises: horses, cattle and timber.

Time to Fly Treat Cattle at Creek Plantation
A couple good ranch horses and a couple of 2 year olds are jumping right in to do their part. See Tanq Engine, Peptos Rockin Siren, Mr Lena Freckles, Keeps Smooth Boy, and Smooth Creek Mr below in action. These horses were presented in Creek’s Horse Sale With Consignments on May 27th at the Hippodrome Horse Complex in North Augusta!
