The farm is situated on land located just outside of North Myrtle Beach, SC and Conway, SC is the home to over 35 wonderful horses. The farm has been in Debbie’s family for over a century. Raised on the farm, Debbie has established a relationship with the horses that includes understanding, commitment and respect between her and her horses. Everything about this farm and stables has been designed and managed to offer the horses the highest level of comfort.
A little bit of history. The land that Wampee Stables is situated on was brought into the family by a local teacher, farmer, shop owner & mail carrier named Oree Jerome Bell (Debbie’s Grandfather). The photo to the left shows Oree beside his mail carriage, if you look closely above the rear wheels you can read the words Wampee SC. Wampee Stables is situated on a portion of the original 2000 acre tract of land that was acquired by Oree and two of his brothers. This land was originally known as the N.F. Nixon Estate. Oree had sold a 346 acre tract of this land to the Tilghman brothers in 1926 and that is now known as Tilghman Beach. Around 1900 a tram railroad crossed this land that traveled from Little River to Conway to transport Cypress timber harvested on this land. The railroad was built by The Gardner-Lacy Lumber Co. the previous owners of the land.
We look forward to hosting your horseback or outdoor country wedding or western event at our farm.
Thank you for choosing Wampee Stables!
