Tack Shops > Horse Tack Guide
Learn about horse tack and find local tack shops.A tack shop markets horse-related products, such as saddles and bridles, to horse owners and the general public. These products may include horseback riding apparel, horse grooming tools, equine health products, and stable equipment. Many tack shops offer equestrian supplies and feed as well. Some shops specialize in English or Western tack and riding apparel or even focus on a single riding discipline such as racing or dressage. Tack store staff members should be knowledgeable about the riding style or discipline in which their store specializes. Tack shop owners often ride horses themselves, and they may know of local horse vets as well as horse boarding and training facilities.
Proper saddle fit is essential for both horse and rider, and a good horse tack retailer should be willing to assist each customer in selecting and fitting a saddle. Some tack stores provide saddles on a trial basis and can even recommend qualified saddle fitters to their clients.
