Ask the Students: Where can I get tack on a limited budget?

by Samantha Capoferri-Fellin
Instructor, Meredith Manor International Equestrian Centre

This Ask the Students question comes from Amber Ratliff:

“Where is a good place to get the required tack on an extremely limited budget?”

Student responses include:

  • "Ask local barns, family members, or anybody you know that rides horses. Everybody has something to get rid of and they’ll usually sell it for pretty cheap."
  • "Leslie’s Tack Solutions, eBay, and I was able to find wonderful prices that fit within my budget. The saddles you can have shipped to you, ride in them, and send them back if they’re not what you want."
  • "eBay!!!"

Meredith Manor is an equestrian career college dedicated to preparing students for hands-on, equestrian careers as trainers, instructors, equine massage therapists, stable managers, farriers and more. If you want a career with horses and are considering attending Meredith Manor, request an information packet to learn more.

I will never forget Meredith Manor. If you want to see if you're up to a life with horses, go there. I learned so much there in a short amount of time. I'm still riding & teaching, and am barn manager at a small place. We have about 20 horses. I cannot imagine a life without horses.
