Types of Tack Shop Merchandise

Tack shops serve the needs of equestrian centers. Keeping a horse requires a lot of equipment and gear that can usually only be found at a tack shop. Some are small and serve only certain needs, such as saddling, while others are larger and serve the needs of western and dressage riders. Below are broad types of merchandise that can be bought at a tack shop.

  • Stall Equipment – For a horse to be happy he needs a nice warm stall full of feed and water. But he also need items sold at tack shops, such as blankets for cold nights and a lead halter for taking him to and from his stall. He will also need cleaning equipment, such as sponges, combs, brushes and tools to get the dirt out of his hooves.
  • Training Equipment – These are items are used when training a horse. They include lead halters and soft training bits for horses who are not used to taking a bridle. More skittish horses may need special training equipment like blinders, which do not allow the horse to see peripheral objects.
  • Riding Equipment – To ride a horse, riders must use a saddle and a bridle. There are two types of saddles, Western and English saddles. English saddles are used for dressage competitions, while Western saddles are commonly used for wrangling and trail riding. You will also need to purchase a saddle pad that sits under the saddle and stirrups to assist in mounting and controlling the horse. For the bridle it must be the appropriate size for your horse. A pony bridle will not work on a horse and vice versa.
  • Clothing – For equestrian dressage competitions there is a strict dress code. Appropriate clothing is often sold at tack shops, such as riding boots, hats and blazers or coats.
